Gorgeous Italian red coral tube beads. The color is a medium red that is all natural. These beads were hand cut and have an excellent polish and shine. They are AA quality hand cut into tubes with flat edges, so they are all slightly different. The average length is 6mm and they are 3mm wide. The beads are an even red color with minimal pits or inclusions. These came out of a dealer's estate, imported in the 1960's. They are so hard to find now days. These beads have not been dyed, and are not bamboo.
- Sold on 16" strands
- Circa 1970's
- Size: 3 x 6mm (average)
