100% genuine cherry amber antique Faturan Bakelite with black swirls from the early twentieth century. Approximately 15mm x 14mm bead size.
These beads were once a different color but become cherry red over time! Excellent condition especially given it is around 100 years old.Smooth and rich to the touch typical of aged Bakelite. The top/Imam bead is adjustable on the cord so that you can set your distance preference and how strong the beads collide when you handle. Once adjusted, the top bead stays in place. Added a picture with real cherries. It's truly a wonder how something God-made and something man-made are almost exactly the same color in spite of how complex and rich the color is!
