This listing is for individual African Trade old Bohemian molded crystal glass pendant beads.  These beads were made in the mid-1800s and traded to Africa.  Fulani women of Mali frequently wear them, and they are known as Holari pendant beads.  

These beads are transparent and look clear in daylight and against the white background. There is a tint of yellow (or pink) in some light, while the beads look transparent and clear in other lighting conditions. The detailed photos are enlarged to show imperfections appropriate for the age.

The beads can be strung together as shown in the last photo, or used as a pendant or focal bead. They are barrel-shaped, about 15mm in length and 9mm in diameter. The hole is roughly 2mm, but there is some variation between these hand-made beads.

Sold by the bead.

The beads are old, and some show age-appropriate patina. Some of the beads have a golden tint more than others, although in daylight the gold tint seems less intense than in the white background photo. The beads may show age-appropriate chips, ticks, and imperfections.

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.
