A collection of historical eye beads spanning multiple eras, I would generalize to be 600-1100 AD, Islamic era to Djenne/Mali/Africa, but do not rule out some being as early as Roman era. They are in various states of age and condition, definitely historic. There are 20 beads shown here but I have a few more of the slice style beads I'm adding to this lot. Contact me for other pictures. If you need literary references to the ancient beads, I recommend Magical Ancient Beads and also the Lois Dubin updated book/bead timeline, The History of Beads.
