This is a very unique bead I bought it years ago, planning on creating a necklace around it. I have never used it, just had it packed away.
This is an African vintage copal amber resin bead. Colors are very different. 3/4 of the bead the is a milky, creamy color of golden butterscotch color. Then 1/4 of the bead is a root beer color. There are places that the color mix together.
This bead is square shaped with rounded corners. There are 4 holes. Measurement is 1 1/8" from hole to hole. Then 1 3/16" wide. There is a hole on the top and bottom, 13/16" from top hole to bottom hole
Very unique bead that could be used in a variety of ways. as I said the colors in this bead are so unique.
On one of bead holes on the side there is another small hole about 1/8" wide, this hole does not go through the bead. I wanted to let you know this, I don't think it takes away from the beauty or uniqueness.
