Ancient White Agate Yoruba Tribal Beads Kate Drew-Wilkinson
Ancient beads are hard to nail to any particular time made unless you know exactly where they were found..I've been collecting for a long time and I know these are really old! I can tell by the way the holes through them were drilled and the edges of the holes.. These are White Agate from the Yoruba Tribe in Nigeria, West Africa.. They are gently on their way here.. Average size 1.4 inches in length. The one on the right is extra special.. When you can see that design, it is known as an eye bead..
