Agate from Cambay India | Beads
All the slim beads are Agate. Beads that resemble them were made in the distant past in Bohemia, but the way to tell is to look at the hole. If it is perfectly formed, the bead is glass made to resemble Agate. If the hole is obviously drilled, it is stone. The larger one is an old Bohemian "Agate". It was slightly chipped at one end, but in time the chip site became rounded , the ends not sharp, showing that the bead had a great deal of wear and is ancient!
