This is a very rare and special set. Butter smooth to the touch. Just stroking the beads puts you in a different place! All beads are original and have the circular veins and the veins are clearly visible even without shining a light.My guess it was made in Egypt (the Faturan block) for a Greek collector. Beautiful cherry shade color that changes when you put in different light areas. Has been in my collection for years.
If you want an example that belongs in a text book, and truly original Faturan, this is a great opportunity!
