Handmade Tibetan Bead - Turquoise, Red Stone and Brass Tapered Cyclinder
Another difficult shape to describe. Not really a bicone, so we have been call this general shape a tapered cylinder. This one has a teardrop pattern. Large enough to be used as a focal bead or grab a bunch for a chunkier piece!
These amazing Tibetan beads have come a long way to our shop. Our amazing finder Michael found them in Thailand and brought them over for us. When they are gone, they are gone. We will never get any more of them! They are made of turquoise and red stone and since they are handmade, no 2 look exactly alike.
Approximately 24 mm long by 13 mm at the widest and 4 mm at the ends. (15/16" long by the 1/2" at the widest and 1/8" the ends)
