These beads show a lovely range of deep earth-tone red and brown coloration and some unique weathering patterns and banding. Some of these beads do show extensive signs of wear consistent with their great age but overall these are in good condition.

Note photos are often amplified for clarity and detail. Please read all item descriptions clearly where the size is ALWAYS clearly stated. In many of our listings a coin is included in the photo for size comparison. For seed beads, the various standardized sizes (i.e. 6/0, 5/0, 4/0, etc) are often also used. If you need to get out a ruler or a pair of calipers, do so! If you find the size of an item is not clearly in the description be sure to let me know!
