This listing is for 1 strand of ancient Roman glass beads as pictured. There are 18 beads on the strand. 17 of the beads are double drilled and 1 is single drilled. These range in length from 12mm to 22 mm. Most are predominantly transparent and clear or just have a slight fog, but some have extensive mottling. There are a couple that are much thicker and some that are thin. The shades are green to teal with one that is a brown shade.
Per the supplier that I get all my Roman times glass from:
These Ancient Glass pieces are more than 2,150 years old, dating back to 350-150 B.C. They originated during the era of the Bactrian Kingdom of the North Central Asia. The Bactrian Kingdom was the heart of Asia during its peak. During this time the kingdom possessed great wealth and knowledge as one of the major trading centers of the Ancient World. Bactrians were centuries ahead of their time as a modern and innovative society, with accomplishments in industry, philosophy, human awareness and art. These ancient glass pieces were once beads, jars, cups, vases, perfume containers and decorative tiles. Over the passing of the ages, buried under the earth, the objects broke into pieces and began collecting earth mineral deposits. The deposits form unique colors, known to experts as patina. We support and promote fair trade practices, small businesses and merchants.
