I'm wondering if anybody recognizes something about this that might help me learn more about it -- what its made of, where it might have come from, how old it could be, or anything else for that matter??!!
It is a largish single spherical bead (about an inch across and 1-1/2" long total) made of some kind of yellow translucent material with whitish graining in it, fixed (cemented, I think?) between conical silver caps with a textured spiral-ish pattern to them. To me, the whole thing has a kinda 'handmade' look to it, with small irregularities/scratches/etc. still showing if you look really close. It isn't all that heavy for its size, weighing in at roughly 20 grams.
Best as I can remember, I picked it up someplace (no idea where??) several years ago already 'loose'. It is now on a slender black lanyard cord necklace, which I do recall was somewhat challenging to thread through it...apparently the hole within it is slightly smaller than those on the silver cones.
ANY AND ALL SUGGESTIONS are WELCOMED, as to what it is or what might to be done with it??!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
