A stunning necklace of highly collectible ancient stone beads from Burma. There are 56 beads on this necklace, which range in size and shape. The majority of the beads are made from agate or a more opalised material that is unique to Pyu beads. This is mainly a necklace of decorated beads, with many designs only seen on Burmese beads.
