Hi Fred

Thank you for your comment.

Not contemporary especially for the 1 black & white and 1 carnelian beads measured 2.6 cm.

It is the other 1 black & white bead measured 4.8 cm in length that I am curious to find out more information.

IMHO I think this bead is old based on the polishing, drilled perforations from both sides and many tiny red spots on the body/white patterns.

But I cannot be certain because of the "length", without the usual "plain bands" at the ends, decorated white patterns appear like "spotty" and "gray colors" in some areas.

Any comments or information are most appreciated.

Have a nice weekend.

Lee
