Seller: Top-Rated Plus Seller worldtraveler57 (3,406) 100%, Location: Miami, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 352797268263 I have a complete and utter fascination with old beads and have spent the better part of the last few weeks researching the Pre-Columbian culture as it pertains to beads and artifacts in the pursuit of writing descriptions for my eBay listings. * I have included some of those findings at the end of this description. For me the most precious part of old beads is the way they feel to hold. I love the characteristics of color, patterning, shape, patina and texture. This auction is for a Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican blue green jade pectoral bead. The back, top where the hole is and sides have digs and erosion from wear and usage, while the bottom and the front have a lustrous smooth patina which show the beauty of the stone. The bead hole is drilled at the top and triangular. The shape which is somewhat triangular is fat and chunky. The bead measures 9.1 x 21.6 x 11.8mm. The weight is 4.6 grams.

This auction is for a Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican greenstone jade bead. The Archeaology of Greenstone “Greenstone is a common generic term for valuable, green-hued minerals and metamorphosed igneous rocks and stones which early cultures used in the fashioning of hardstone carvings such as jewelry, statuettes, ritual tools, and various other artifacts. Greenstone artefacts may be made of greenschist, chlorastrolite, serpentine, omphacite, chrysoprase, olivine, nephrite, chloromelanite among other green-hued minerals. The term also includes jade and jadeite, although these are perhaps more frequently identified by these latter terms. The greenish hue of these rocks generally derives from the presence of minerals such as chlorite, hornblende, or epidote. Greenstone minerals were presumably selected for their color rather than their chemical composition. In archaeology therefore, having a loosely applied general term is at least partially influenced by the observation that ancient cultures often used and considered these various green-hued materials as interchangeable.” The bead hole is drilled at the top and triangular. There are 6 sides to the bead which has a fat chunky shape. It measures 9.1 x 21.6 x 11.8mm. The weight is 4.6 grams. Visit My eBay Store Payment Paid orders must be shipped within one business day.
