Colodonte beads are a traditional oval-shaped bead made in Czechoslovakia during the mid 20th century. These beads were exported from Czechoslovakia to Western Africa and used for trade. Colodonte beads are most commonly found in red, white, and black colors. To find them in this rare turquoise color is becoming exceedingly difficult. Each bead measures approximately 16 x 12mm with a hole size of 1mm. Limited supply available.
