Description
 
SOLD!

A beautiful ancient Funan period banded agate bead from South East Asia. Beads such as this were highly valued across this region in ancient times and many beads of this type had their ends capped with gold. In fact this may once have been the case with this bead. It is a very dark bead and has some lines of crystalline banding. One end is translucent. Funan beads are usually not so wide, so this stands out as being very large for its type.

Age: 100 to 600 CE
South East Asia
Condition: Very good with minor weathering
83 mm x 10 mm
