Older Strand of North African amber trade beads. Shaped slightly cylindrically, these beads are 1 1/4" in diameter. Some ends are angled slightly which makes them seem to curve. There are 38 beads in all. These appear to be fashioned to complement Venetian millefiori African trade beads (also known as Goulamine beads). These are temporarily strung, and a few show marks from being burn tested. These are most likely Moroccan.
