A highly collectible dark hardstone bead in the shape of an elephant. Zoomorphic stone beads were prized as amulets in this region. It displays an opaque black colour that is not so commonly seen and might indicate that it is a darker jade variety. Most beads of this design were carved from green chalcedony, carnelian or rock crystal.
