Prehistoric, Neolithic dolerite Neolithic pendant 64 x 32 mm - (1)
Neolitisch (4500-2500 j. oud) - Mauritania

This rather large pendant is made of dolerite. Drilling a hole in the Neolithic was not that simple. ... It was done with a bamboo or reed and during the turning movement abrasives were added. They first drilled along one side to the middle and then a second hole was drilled on the other side. This way they tried to connect the two holes, just like digging a tunnel...
These pendants are rare and probably prestige objects. Originating from the Kiffa area in the southern part of Mauritania
