Original Message:   Re: Re: etching - some different examples - Indus Valley & Samon Valley/Pyu
Here's another interesting Indus Valley bead where the white etching has for some reason turned pink. It's 18 mm. long.

And then a slightly ellipsoidal cylinder bead from the Samon Valley in Burma. It's 37 mm. It dates from the late first millennium BCE. The carnelian has a lovely translucent glow, and the perforation is very finely drilled, as with many of these beads. These Samon Valley beads are often ascribed to the later Pyu culture (100-900 CE).
