Beautiful craved Galalith bead necklace made in France with classic French early clasp. The beads are graduated. They start off larger in the center of the necklace and get smaller towards the clasp. “Galalith (Erinoid in the United Kingdom) is a synthetic plastic material manufactured by the interaction of casein and formaldehyde. The commercial name is derived from the Greek words gala (milk) and lithos (stone). It is odorless, insoluble in water, biodegradable, non-allergenic, antistatic, and virtually nonflammable.”
CONDITION Very good.
