A naturally white banded and tapered caramel-brown agate Dzi Tibetan bead, most likely originally made in India or Central Asia, BC 700 to 200 AD and traded across the Continent. The middle part of the bead is thicker than the tapered ends which gives them a graceful curve. An unobstructed hole runs through the center of this lovely bead. These rare striped beads were considered magical in ancient and present times. Good condition. Size: L. 1.9 cm x 0.4 cm diameter.
