The most stunning, unique and gorgeous deep, dark (rare) tiger eye stone bead hand knotted necklace. Some of the darker beads give the appearance of banded agate. Depending on light, they show shades of brown, some very dark, and soft, glowing reflective shades of deep, dark red, green and blue. The beads are large at 10mm or almost 1/2 inch. Length is 20 inches excluding the 14K gold clasp, weight is 63 grams. These beads are old and fine quality and had not "seen the light" for over 50 years. Very good vintage condition.
