I acquired the three agate beads (2,3 and 4 as beads are numbering )in Brussels in 2013 from a Belgian private collector. He told me he collected the beads in Tehran, more than 20 years ago. The beads (agate) dated 50 to 400 BC, Persia.
The chalcedony bead I acquired in Gent in the same year from a Belgian collector. He told me that the bead was ancient, dated 2nd century B.C..
