These African Snake Vertebrae have a beautiful brown aged look about them and they appear to have been around for quite a while. They accurately portray the environment they originate from.
As I understand it the snake vertebrae were worn to ward off snake bites. They were also used in various ceremonies by the shamans or healers. I do know they are beautiful additions to any jewelry or art that is in the primitive, tribal or of the mystical genre. These are ready for a talented individual to use in creating a spectacular piece of jewelry or art.
The length of the all vertebrae when they are placed together is approximately 4". The beads are 13mm long and 10mm wide. They are very lightweight and durable. There is a natural hole in the center that is about 2mm wide.
The group that you see in the pictures is the group that you will receive when you order.
They are by their nature imperfect and unique. Inspect the Snake Vertebrae carefully to ensure that you receive what you are looking for.
