Product Code: BANCHIANG8

Description
 
A beautiful necklace comprised of 21 ancient dark blue glass beads that closely resemble beads from the Ban Chiang region of Northern Thailand. Ban Chiang beads normally have a truncated biconical shape and these beads are faceted, so they might be from a different region entirely. The beads display a lovely translucent sapphire blue when back lit. They are also strung with very rare untreated AAA grade Lapis Lazuli beads and we haven't been able to source Lapis in this quality for many years.

Condition: Very good with minor weathering commensurate with age.
Average Ban Chiang Bead measures approx 24 mm x 16 mm
28 Lapis Lazuli Beads (8 mm) are from Afghanistan and were cut and polished in Germany.
Glass Bead Origin: South East Asia
Glass bead age: 200 BCE + or -
length of necklace approx 24 inches
