A super rare ancient agatised stone Pumtek bead with a longevity and lotus flower design. If you view each of the holes from above, you can see that each of the lotus flowers are made up of 5 petals (10 petals in total) and each of these are contained within the longevity decoration. A robust bead with zones of orangey red colour.
Collected in Burma in the 1980s
