Khmer banded agate bead
~Sold to China, xie xie ni!~ $250.USD

Fine and rare circa 6th CE slightly tapered cylindrical Cambodian agate bead. I acquired this about 10 years ago in Thailand, originally this was said to be from Cambodia and pre Khmer. I was perusing a book recently, which has a photo of this type of bead- Khmer Gold: Gifts for the Gods: Emma Bunker and Douglas Lateford, which places this as pre 6th century which would make it either Chenla or Funan Kingdoms, and excavated in Banteay Meanchy Province, Cambodia, which backs this up. L: 6.7cm/2.8in and D: 1cm/.4in- intact with some chips on the end.
