Hand-wound Naga "Coral Glass" Heirloom Beads were originally hand wound glass trade beads created in the mid 20th century in India, and made to resemble precious red coral. Lovingly handcrafted to the most beautiful details including the craters and fissures seen in natural coral. These richly colored beads were later traded among Naga people in Northern India and Burma. Because of their rarity and desirability, these "foreign" glass beads became treasured heirlooms among the Naga people.
