Every time I see a picture with glass beads, I feel very excited. I feel that it is really beautiful. In fact, we also played it when we were young, but we call it marbles. Does it bring back memories of your childhood? Ah, let's take a look at the 'childhood' of glass beads.   has existed since the Western Zhou Dynasty. It became popular during the Warring States Period. Almost all glass beads in the tombs of the Warring States Period excavated at present. Its development is inseparable from the continuous improvement of technology and equipment, and the cleaner glass texture. At the same time, people use less jade for decoration, which cannot meet people's requirements, which promotes the production of glass beads in large quantities and exquisiteness.   In 1978, the world-renowned set of chimes was unearthed from the tomb of Zenghouyi in Leigudun, Suixian County, Hubei Province, and many strings of glass beads were unearthed. The two strings of glass beads in this picture are funeral objects in this tomb. One string is made of seven monochromatic glass beads. The beads are round, purple-brown, with a smooth surface and a regular shape. The other string of beads is beautifully decorated. They are typical dragonfly eye glass beads. They are mostly oblates of varying sizes, with light blue or green as the base color. The surface is decorated with several white and light blue concentric rings. The central part is slightly higher than the surroundings and is convex. This string of glass beads should be made by winding silk, and then dipped in white material and light blue material respectively, and dotted on the bead in a ring shape, and bonded together when both are not completely condensed.   Dragonfly eye glass beads were the main form of glass beads during the Spring and Autumn Period and Warring States Period. At the same time, they are also found throughout Central Asia, West Asia and North Africa. The size of each bead in this string is different, except for one that is green diamond, the other shapes are oblates with perforations, and the shape is uniform. These glass beads are bright in color and regular in shape, reflecting a high level of technology, and can be used as a typical representative of glass beads in the Warring States period.
