Bactrian Rock Crystal Necklace

Central Asia, Bactria, present day Afghanistan/Pakistan, ca. 1st millennium BCE. A lovely and ready to be worn necklace comprised of 34 hand carved, polished, and drilled clear rock crystal stones - most of a lozenge form. It is just amazing to look through the beads to see how the holes were painstakingly drilled from each side. Size: 23" L (58.4 cm)

Condition: Normal age wear - some scratches, scuffs, and nicks commensurate with age. Still the stones are outstanding and beautifully translucent. Some also show nice mineral deposits. All beads are ancient. Findings and stringing are modern.

Provenance: private Liu, New York, USA collection, ex-Artemis Gallery, ex private East Coast collection
