Wonderful large Chinese hand carved bone beads. The 25mm beads are intricately carved with four turtles on each bead. For the Chinese, the tortoise is sacred and symbolizes longevity, power, and tenacity. They have large holes (4-5mm), which will work well with leather or cords. They have a dyed brownish finish which accentuates the carvings. Beautiful focal beads that will add a BOHO touch to your jewelry, macrame or crafting projects.
