This prehistoric bead is 1 1/2" in diameter (37mm) and 5/8" thick (@15mm). It is made of quartz and is in very good condition. If you look carefully at the hole you will see that it is conical in shape, from bi-facial drilling, an indication of its form of manufacture and ancient age. (These are not "type" photos. This is the actual bead you will receive.) Imagine the time it took to make this by hand several thousand years ago. It was found in the Northern Sahara Desert of Africa and is from the Neolithic Era (New Stone Age) which dates back 3,500 - 6,000 years ago or more. This is a great prehistoric collectible artifact.

The field of Sahara Neolithic Artifacts was expanded by the advent of GPS technology available to meteorite hunters in the Sahara Desert. Thousands of years ago North Africa was a temperate environment similar to our own Great Plains. Countless generations of Stone-Age Man lived, hunted, fought and died there, leaving behind their weapons and tools. Today, North Africa consists largely of the Sahara Desert, an inhospitable area almost the size of the United States. Constantly shifting sands and the ability to now safely travel off of established trade routes have expanded this fascinating field of study by making these artifacts available to scholars and collectors around the world.
