This unusual red bead with spiral impressed or cut lines has applied eyes and was found the Crimean peninsula, or "the Crimean" as I believe it is usually referred to. It is about 18 mm x 13 mm in size and dates from about 800 to 1100 AD, possibly earlier (?). This may be one of the more complex beads that I have seen from this range of types.
