Category: Neolithic Country of Origin/Culture: Western Sahara Approximate Age Range: 10,200 BCE - 2000 BCE Material: Carnelian Size: Approx. 1.85" Provenance: purchase from a private collection. Comments: For sale is this beautiful neolithic quartz nose/labre/ear adornment. The piece is expertly fashioned from a beautiful piece of quartz crystal capped with a piece of ancient metal, most likely copper. This means this lots of information can come from the analysis of the ancient metal.It almost boggles the mind the patients and intelligence it would take to create a cylinder with only stone tools. This stunning piece comes from the neolithic era in Western Sahara. Little is known of the prehistory of Western Sahara, although Neolithic (New Stone Age) rock engravings in Saguia el-Hamra and in isolated locations in the south suggest that it was occupied by a succession of hunting and pastoral groups, with some agriculturists in favoured locales, prior to a gradual process of desertification that began about 2500 BCE. By the 4th century BCE there was trade between Western Sahara and Europe across the Mediterranean; the Phoenicians sailed along the west coast of Africa in this period. The Romans also had some contact with the Saharan peoples. By medieval times this part of the Sahara was occupied by Ṣanhajāh Amazigh (Berber) peoples who were later dominated by Arabic-speaking Muslim Bedouins from about 1000 CE.
