Very interesting chalcedony bead with small human figure carved intaglio on the bottom, accompanying it is an old carnelian bead. It was sourced in China however it resembles much more of a Sassanid or Gandharan artifact than a Chinese one. Guaranteed to be over a thousand years old, and probably much more. 2.3cm/.9in length. The figure is very difficult to photograph so you’ll just have to take my word for it that it is there.
