One hump or two? Camel bone is highly prized for its large size and increased density, compared to cow or water buffalo bone. As they are costly investments for the families who own them, camels are prized throughout their lives as transportation. These beads are carved from animals who died from natural causes and are formed into shapes ideal for use as spacers. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items. Bead, bone (dyed), coffee brown, 2mm round. Sold per 2-inch strand.
