Seller: amunre (29,152) 100%, Location: Kallangur, QLD, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 123979508217 TEN Grams 2500 Year old Ancient Egyptian Faience Mummy Beads Lot (#M700). Note that the number in brackets in the auction title is simply our personal inventory number for this auction. This auction is for the genuine Ancient Egyptian Beads shown in the photo. Buyer will receive the exact beads shown in the photo. They probably can be made into jewelry but from my photo you can obviously see that they show signs of their age and many are not in quite as good of condition that they were 2000 years ago (A few may be broken). See my other ebay items for more ancient beads. These beads date from around 700BC to roughly 300BC. They are made of a ceramic paste called "Faience". They were worn as jewelry by both men and wemon - especially poor people who couldent afford gemstones wore faience beads. Large quantities of these beads were often found in late dynastic Egyptian graves (Hence the modern name "Mummy Beads"). I guarantee that these beads are genuine Egyptian beads more than 2000 years old I have a lot of Egyptian beads now listed on ebay. Buy all of the ancient bead lots that you want and still only pay postage once.
