    I bought these from a friend today. He said that they are pre-colombian and you can tell because the holes are conical - drilled from each side by hand. They are all made from stone. There are 41 of them. i might get them strung so i can wear them. ??

      If they were pre-Columbian wouldn't they have patches of color changes from minerals in the dirt? Yes, you should string them and wear them!

      thanks valentino. not necessarily. alot of beads like this were found in the dirt and picked up and restrung. the discoloration is more common amongst tomb items.

      Sorry, I have to disagree, I love old beads, I have traveled to Mexico and Central America and saw a lot of tourist beads - nice - I'll share some with you later - but I don't think these are pre-Columbian.
