Ancient 4

These Ancient Rock Crystal beads are from Libya, around a Roman area called Apolonia just outside of Derna, which is between Tobruk and Benghazi.  The dig is at a site dated at 100-400AD, but these beads could be much earlier, and traded to the Romans at Apolonia, They are worn and pitted and all the more beautiful for that!!

The Bactrian striped agates  date from 600-300BC  and are so tactile, like satin,
