Crystal Beads for Making Jewelry

The creation and use of beads is reputedly the oldest art form known to mankind. Beads have served many important functions all around the world. Besides being pleasing to the eye, beads have been used as currency, in meditation and prayer and to denote social standing or power.

The world’s oldest jewelry discovered to date was found by archeologists during excavations conducted between 2014 and 2018 near the mouth of Bizmoune Cave, a limestone cave in the western Morocco desert, about 10 miles inland from the coastal city of Essaouira. The archeologists found 33 shell beads made from half-inch-long sea snail shells. Most of the beads were perforated with holes so they could be strung up for adornment and they are between 142,000 and 150,000 years old!
