These delicately finished and rather large beads are typical of the Nigerian Nok culture (late Neolithic-early Iron Age in West Africa). They were made from very fine-grained quartzite. Along both sides they were conically drilled and polished in an elegant shape. Very beautiful patina and signs of wear. Intact.
