The beads are a rare barrel shape, and are strung on green cord. This tesbih weighs a total of 40.7 grams on my digital scale, and measures approximately 22" long (not including the tassel), and hangs approximately 11 " long (not including the tassel). 100% ANTIQUE NATURAL BALTIC BUTTERSCOTCH AMBER! This piece is in EXCELLENT antique condition.
Some of the beads are worn at the ends which is normal and to be expected with antique Baltic amber beads of this age. The holes of the beads are also worn from age. The minaret shaped imame appears to have been replaced at some point in the existence of this piece and is not Baltic amber.
It is not Bakelite, and appears to be faturan amber. THE COLOR OF THESE BEADS IS NOT AS INTENSE ORANGE IN REAL LIFE AS THEY APPEAR IN THE PHOTOS.Do not miss out on this very rare opportunity!
