Description
 
SOLD!

A lovely antique stone pumtek bead. This design is usually seen displayed on round beads and very few are seen in this shape. The total number of horizontal lines or sun rays is eight, which seems to be quite a specific number for this design. It is possible this motif was seen to have a unique amuletic power for the Chin tribe.

Sourced in the 1980s.
Origin: Burma
21 mm x 9 mm
Condition: Excellent with minor weathering
