Beads and mollusk shells, c. 4,000-3,000 BP., archaeological site of Tham village, Trung Hoa commune, Minh Hoa district, Quang Binh province.

Mollusk shells were used to make beads of different sizes. Those made of Cyprae seashells were not only jewelry, but also merchandise, or, “currency” of the prehistoric people in this period. This type of artefact was also found in other Southeast Asian countries, which shows the fact that this jewelry was popular and largely used by the people.
