The red rosary bead

In July 2013 I found this glass pebble on Scarborough beach.  It's a lot smaller than it looks in the above picture. 

Here it is next to a 5p piece:

With thanks to the Finds Office at the British Museum, the pebble has been identified as a bead that may have been used as part of a rosary, dating from the post medieval or early modern period. 

Full details on the bead are at the British Museum Finds Office website.

I am offering it for sale to any collector who would like it.  Please email me if you're interested in buying it.
