These vintage serpentine carved barrel beads were purchased in Boston in the 1980's. Nicely carved. One bead has carved ends, the other bead has smooth ends -- so the two beads are NOT identical in carving or in color. The are identical in size.
The bead with the carved ends is beautiful soft light creamy green. The bead with the smooth ends is also a soft light creamy green, but a tiny bit lighter in color.
Please examine the photos as I tried to show the different ends and the carving on the sides of the beads. The stones are a bit translucent so the photos show a bit of shadowing towards the bottom of the standing bead, made by the angle of light.
Material: Green Serpentine Length: 27.7mm Width: 12.2mm Hole Size: 2.5mm
