A highly collectible stone bead from ancient Burma. Ancient Green Chalcedony beads are seldom seen in the marketplace and this has added rarity because it is carved in the shape of a stylised crouching tiger. This bead is particularly large for its type and few carved tigers are seen in such wonderful condition. This would make a stunning focal bead on a necklace strung with other stone beads from this region.
Size: 34mm x 18mm
Origin: Ancient Burma, Pyu/Tircul
