    (Hope I'm not flooding the board)

    I came across these as well, are they Japanese frit beads? (They aren't a necklace are they? Just on a piece of string)

    They have a rough feel on the outside, not sure how good my pics are, (GREAT CLOSE UP OF A SPAN HAIR HOWEVER, <3 I do apologise) like something's been thrown on them.
    Individual beads are just under an inch I THINK

    If I could have some words to look I would be very grateful xxx
    ( I don't really know what to look for)

    Oh whilst I'm here, I found this too. It looks like amber with a stick in it...it has a HORRID setting. Is it possible it is amber?
    ( It's in such a nasty setting it's obviously not *nice* but I like it )

    It's two inches across and about an inch deep.

    Thank you everyone <3

    Thanks for your reply xx
    ...there IS a crack looking bit,but the bit I mean is for sure not a crack, it's above that It looks just like a teeny branch. One end of it is almost at the top of the surface and looks organic that end.
    Not stone...it's warmish. More likely to be plastic but I don't think it's that either.

    I'll vote amber on that.

    I'd call them spatter rather than frit.

    The amber looks like it might have a 'grasshopper?' in it......
