A collection of faience ornaments from Harappa. The Harappans developed a very compact glassy faience that was produced in a variety of colors, ranging from white, to blue green, deep blue and even red-brown.

Bead Pot

After removal of the overlying sediment it was clear that the pot was filled with beads. Each bead was mapped in and then photographed before removal. In the lower levels were many tiny beads that had settled to the bottom.

Steatite beads

These tiny steatite beads were found in the Harappan cemetery and come from an elaborate hair ornament worn by a male individual. Each bead is less than .01 cm long and less than .01 cm diameter.
