It is difficult to tell on the lot because of pictures, etc, and some or possibly all could be new, but I wouldn't want to be fooled by color or style. Remember the Black Sea trade was quite a bit different in color choices and bead styles.

I will be making another posting soon of more ancient beads from the Black Sea trade or that were influenced thereby.
