Yemen Black Coral Prayer Necklace #5
Beautiful strand of Black Coral from Yemen. Yemen silver smiths have a long tradition of nailing tiny silver nails into black coral beads, and these are excellent examples of that art form. The beads are often made in malas or prayer bead strands. The beads on this particular strand are in particularly nice condition, and comes complete with four more recent Bohemian faceted black glass.
This strand measures 24 inches long. The long center bead measures 7 mm in diameter and 40 mm tall. The oval beads each measure about 12 mm with a diameter of 10 mm. The strand is graduated. The strand weighs 60.10 g total.
