Beautiful antique Islamic prayer beads, composed of 33 barrel shaped beads measuring approximately 15mm by 17mm, the leader bead measures about 37 mm long. I have tested the beads with the friction test which you can see in the last photo, and Simichrome, the Simichrome test came out much redder than Im used to which is maybe from dye added to the mixture, and it does not have the strong phenolic smell Im used to with these, its more of a sweet smell. In overall good antique condition.The item "Antique Cherry Amber Bakelite Faturan Islamic Prayer Beads" is in sale since Wednesday, October 7, 2020.
