A Short Graduated Strand of Genuine Mediterranean Precious Coral Beads


This listing is for a strand of 14 genuine antique Mediterranean red coral beads sourced in Morocco. The coral is red-orange, with some black inclusions.

The beads are graduated from 5 to 10 mm in diameter, with approximately 0.8-1mm hole. The beads are rondel or cylindrical. They are in good antique condition, but as is appropriate for the age, may have some nicks and minor scratches on them. The black inclusions are usually in small depressions on the surface of the bead. Please see the photos for detail.

Each strand is about 11-12cm long and weighs about 8-10g.

Multiple strands are available. They are quite similar, and the photo shows a representative example. If you would like to see a photo of the specific strand you order, let us know.

Weights and sizes are approximate.

COLORS: Our photos are taken in different lighting in an attempt to show how beads look in different lighting conditions. We make every effort to show colors as accurately as possible. The white background photos are taken in daylight conditions. The black background photos are taken in the strong lab light, and would be representative of what they would look like in the evening electric light. Some of the photos are backlit to emphasize their translucency. Note that monitor settings strongly affect the way the colors look. What you see on your monitor may differ from what you see with a naked eye depending on your monitor settings.
