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).
