Hi, all. Here is a large bead or pendant from the beach south of Caesarea
Maritima, so it could be almost any age from Neolithic, to Late Hellenistic to Modern! Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks, V-drome
Pendant or Bead
Dark gray stone
of medium-high hardness with
six flat edges and a double curve at the top. Slightly
asymmetrical, but weighted so as to hang point down.
Possibly made of basalt or very hard limestone.
The hole is drilled from both sides with a
very small opening in the middle.Max
. dimension: 4.1cm. Thickness: 0.65cm. Weight
