A lovely dark agatised Pumtek stone bead with the rare radiating sun design. The surface has been worn smooth from centuries of wear and handling. It displays a central equatorial stripe and 8 lines extending horizontally across the body. This design is often compared to a 'rail track' or the stitching on a rugby ball. If you view the side profile you can see this decoration actually forms a sun like design. The sun being the decorated circle around the holes and the sun rays being the 8 lines that radiate outwards.

Origin: Burma
