$9.00 AUD

Description

Hand carved lacquer bead - called Cinnabar bead.  Isn't this light green colour simply stunning!!?

Quantity per pack:  5

Today's cinnabar is most probably made from resin - sometimes still hand carved, and totally safe to wear.  Centuries ago, people became very ill from making/wearing cinnabar due to it's mercury content, but didn't know this at the time!
