Seller: jerijeanne (13,350) 99.6%, Location: Bellbrook, Ohio, Ships to: US, Item: 381864958783 This listing is for one 15.5" strand of ancient Roman Glass, made into beads, and temporarily strung on a cotton string, You are buying the same beads shown in the pictures - wear it as shown, or restring - these will make fabulous focal beads for your own designs. These beads are commonly described as Ancient Roman Glass beads in the market but they are not truly antique - the beads were recently made, from shards of ancient aqua blue glass unearthed in Balkh, North Afghanistan. I bought these from the same Afghan vendor who produces the Afghan stone beads I carry - he believes the glass dates from the time of the Roman Empire, roughly 2000 years ago - though there is some debate among antique bead experts about whether this glass is in fact Roman era, or whether it is Islamic period glass roughly 900 years old, or perhaps newer? I am no expert - however it certainly appears to be OLD, these look quite similar to the dated with provenance necklaces sold in museum stores for fantastic sums - they have lots of Patina and are interesting and unique. This strand of beads measures 15.5 inches long on a cotton string 22 " long; the center disc shaped pendant focal bead is about 1.75" and is clearly hand blown - there are 16 Ancient Glass beads (15 aqua blue plus one cobalt blue) plus the large round pendant bead on the strand.
