Beautiful piece I purchased on the Island of Bali in 1980 where this 'granulation' work on that big bead was done. The beautiful lapiz lazuli bead is most likely from Afghanistan. Tiny faceted beads in between. A rare piece from the 1980's.
The length is 2 inches long. It has a gold cast to it as I believe I had it gold dipped long ago.
