The above beads were collected in the 1970s from Pakistan. Apparently there was a stone bead maker working at that time who transformed old islamic agate amulets into these beautiful agate beads by recarving and re-drilling them. The top photo shows a bead that is extremely large at 81 mm x 45 mm. They are flat beads with a depth of around 5 mm.
