I have been collecting vintage and antique Chinese beads for many years. These beads are huge and would make a stunning focal bead at the center of a necklace or as a drop on a mala style necklace. I just love the intricate and delicate carving on these rare antique Chinese vintage beads carved from Beautiful Natural Frosty or Ice Quartz Crystal Stone. The stone has a bit of frosty natural inclusion to it which makes it look like ice. These beads measure approximately 25mm x 18mm size and are shaped like a barrel. The detail in these beads is just exquisite and and the kind of work you just don't see anymore. The design is a really beautiful flower that is repeated and in between what looks like leaves. These beads are becoming so hard to find especially in quartz.
This listing is for ONE bead. I do have multiples in this bead so if you are interested in more please tell me and I will create a custom listing for you. 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 auctioning in the next few months so please take a look at my other listings and save me to your seller list.
