Blue Whale bead measures 37.6mm long (a little under 1-1/2 inches) and 11.3mm high (.44 of an inch). 

This turquoise blue whale bead was hand-made by a Peruvian artist.  A ceramic bead, the tail is aligned with the body with an unglazed underbelly.

2mm hole is vertically drilled in the position of the whale's spout.  

Hand-made ceramic beads date back to Peru's Nazcan culture.  Whales were prominent in their ceramic art.  Whale beads are often worn by Peruvian shamans.
