A major avenue of the silk road from the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf, passed through Afghanistan where these beads originate. Even with a detailed archeological study, it is difficult to tell the true history and use of these glass artifacts. Although given their Afganistanian origin, it can be speculated that these beads are reworked fragments from ornate decorations, such as vases, chalices, plates, and other items used and enjoyed by ancient peoples trading goods along the silk road.
