I have been collecting vintage and antique Chinese beads for many years. I just love the intricate and delicate carving on Chinese vintage beads. these Beads I believe are carved from Howlite. They are a very consistent bright blue turquoise color and deeply carved like the vintage beads that I have had from real turquoise. . .I'm guessing that these are howlite because of the color but it is hard to tell. I'm selling them at a low price assuming that these are not natural turquoise though so please note this before buying them, thank you. The lot that I have varies in size slightly but are approximately 12mm. I'm trying to match them in pairs but let me know if you are interested in smaller sizes. This pair measures 12mm in size. I would loosely say that these are vintage just because even these deeply carved beads in howlite are becoming harder to find as the new beads are distinctly uniform in the light surface carving. This listing is for a Pair of 12mm BEADS selected from the lot pictured above. These are natural stone not resin.
This listing is for ONE Pair of beads.
These beads are vintage stock so once they are gone they are gone. Please look at the photos carefully and message me with any questions.
I have a large collection of Asian, mostly Chinese beads, jewelry and other antiques that I will be adding to my store in the next few months so please take a look at my other listings and save me to your favorite seller list.
