Details

Old Tibetan or Nepal repousse brass capped agate beads. These are natural old weathered agates with shades of rust white and brown No two beads are the same. They all vary in the natural patterning of the stone. These are older beads and show a slight bit of wear; they have far more character than the new beads being made today. They range from 39-43mm in length and weigh 8.5-9 grams. Holes in the stone are hand drilled. They are too far recessed to measure but look to be around 1.5mm. sold individually.

The Tibetans sometimes applied gold or silver caps to the ends of valuable ancient stone beads such as etched carnelians, dZi and banded agates to conceal damage or reinforce fragile beads. This style has been copied in some vintage and contemporary silver-capped beads from Nepal.
