The next 2 groups also came from the eastern Black Sea region, but are opaque with some faceted shapes and small biconal shapes with decorative lines. They are smaller in size about 3 to 9 mm in diameter with the longest beads being about 19 mm in length. These probably date to the early first millennium AD, or about the Roman era. Some of these are a very good facsimile of lapis lazuli and may have been intended for that purpose.
