Vintage mid century big fat chunky long 31 inch strand of natural green malachite bead necklace with green crystal spacers. These big fat natural malachite beads are carved into elongated diamond shaped barrel and have really wonderful mottled color. In ancient Egypt the color green (wadj) was associated with death and the power of resurrection as well as new life and fertility. They believed that the afterlife contained an eternal paradise which resembled their lives but with no pain or suffering, and referred to this place as the ‘Field of Malachite’. The beads are hand strung with a brass barrel clasp and vary in size from 1-1/4" long x 1/2" wide to 1/2" long x 1/4" wide. There are a total of 27 malachite beads. The necklace is in excellent condition except one of the medium size beads, which has been repaired (blends in very well and not readily visible, you will have to hunt for it. Really lovely organic look and feel, you can't help wanting to keep fondling them like worry beads, so cool to the touch with great heft! Circa mid century, boho chic.
