Ensemble of ancient cylindrical and tapered beads. The agate beads came out of Cambodia (4 have faint bands in the center), and date circa 5th to 6th Century (either Chenla or Funan Kingdoms), although most online sources say these are Dong Son. The two carnelian beads came out of China but could have just easily come originally from Central Asia, and are certainly quite old. Scale is in cm. Free shipping via Hong Registered Airmail.

Eighteen bead strand of quartz crystal. These were excavated from the Tak Hilltop Burial Site in along the Thai Burmese border, and can be dated at least to the 14th century due to the ceramics found in the same strata. I am however of the opinion these are much earlier probably at least 1500 years old or more as similar pieces are found in the Neolithic/Bronze Age Lopburi Sites. These are strung on an expandable elastic string with an interior circumference of 17cm/6.8in. Actual...
