These polished white bone beads have been individually shaped from recycled cow bone. Each bead measures approximately 9mm wide by 12mm in diameter with hole size of 2mm. The length of strand measures about 38" long - very long. Look carefully and you will see the grain of the natural material. The strand has approximately 108 beads so it can also be used as a Mala. Natural shade of white bone beads may vary slightly from strand to strand. Color of tassels may differ from photo. Great Value!
