il 340x270.965220378 81ycThis is a gorgeous strand of long rectangular Carnelian gemstone, finely cut and drilled, with sizes ranging from approx. 10x20 mm at the smallest to approx. 15x32 mm. at the largest. Hole is approx. 3 mm. There are 21 beads on this strand.

This is an excellent example of German Idar-Oberstein stonework which was traded in Mali and West Africa in the 1800s. Truly beautiful, rich caramel-colored beads - they would add delicious elements to your bold ethnic, boho or tribal designs.
