60 glass shards excavated in Afghanistan that have been knapped and drilled into pendants/beads. Many have an intense opalescent (dichroic?) patina. They are quite thin and date to around the 500 CE, possibly late Roman. There are 60 pieces in total and may be used in contemporary jewelry settings. Scale in enlargement is metric.
