This bracelet is about 11 cm diameter and has been crafted from black chlorite in a snake or dragon (note the small ears) design.  It seems likely that this bracelet was meant as a burial piece, as chlorite is not durable for jewellery - in fact this bracelet was found broken into three pieces.  It dates from the 3rd Millennium BC and was found in Afghanistan.
