Carnelian Cabochon Ring Engraved Timbuktu Tribal Jewelry Size 8
$56.00

This handmade ring was made in the African country Mali near the city of Timbuktu.   It features a carnelian cabochon bezel set stone in the center of an irregular hexagon (six uneven sided) in white metal.  The bezel set Carnelian is 16 millimeters long x 12 mm wide x 9 mm deep.

 It is skillfully engraved on each of the six sides and on the surface around the set stone.  The irregular polygon ring measures 28 mm from point to point and 20 mm from flat side to flat side.    The 6 millimeters flat round band is chased in relief creating an indented design around the entire band.  It’s a Size 8.

Unfortunately, Timbuktu and the surrounding areas have recently suffered greatly from being so close to Libya and the fanatical terrorist bands crossing over into its lands.  These amulets and other items from Mali were purchased from an honorable trader who supports the tribal artisans both women and men.
