A large ancient Tairona banded agate bead pendant. This well sculpted piece is very tactile and has a tabular crescent moon shape with suspension holes. The agate displays fine crystalline banding and large natural eyes can be seen on both sides.
The perforations are 'U' shaped at the apex and this allows it to be worn as a focal pendant on necklace. It glows beautifully when held in the light. It would be hard to find a nicer agate specimen from this region.
Condition: Excellent with minor weathering commensurate with age.
Size: 58mm x 39mm x 17mm (depth)
Age: 1000 to 2000 years old
