16mm Cinnabar Bead - Light Green (2)
Hand carved lacquer bead - called Cinnabar bead. Isn't this light green colour simply stunning!!?
Measurements: about 16mm in diameter, 15mm thick, hole: 2mm - remembering they are handmade so sizes can vary slightly
Centuries ago, people became very ill from making/wearing cinnabar due to it's mercury content! Today's cinnabar is most probably made from resin - sometimes still hand carved, and totally safe to wear.
