Beads were offered in rituals performed at the Beiram Kurgan: illustrated (far left and far right) are wood-carved beads, a blue glass bead and a carnelian bead in the center. Other beads, not illustrated, include a group of about 40 small white-glass seed beads, a faceted carnelian bead, a wood-carved “button” ca. 2.5 cm in diameter. More recently, a Mongol had offered up a round silver-colored button from his or her del, the traditional Mongol coat-dress.
