Ancient Granite Beads from the Dogon Peoples

Dogon1

Beautiful strand of ancient granite beads from the Dogon people of Mali in Africa.  These granite beads are particularly nice examples of their kind.  Granite is actually quite a hard stone, so this necklace represents the investment of an enormous amount of time and effort by the ancient peoples.  

The necklace measures approximately 28 inches long, and the beads measure about 14 mm in diameter at their largest.
