Ancient Granite (Gneiss) Single Bead with Two Knot Cord


More is know about these beads than when I first offered them. Experts say they date from 1200 AD and could be much older. I have been told by a historian friend that some of them date from 200 BC to 300AD. This particular bead is definitely one of the older ones. The hole tells us this. Wonderful vibe! A simple and wearable piece of history from Djenne, Mali. Gneiss is a foundation rock of this planet. You would be wearing a fundamental piece of Earth.
