String of twenty tubular and fifty-six disc-shaped callainite beads.  Most of the beads have a biconical hole, although some of the disc-shaped ones have a cylindrical hole. Together with two honey-coloured flint knives of a triangular cross-section and a limestone pendant, they were part of the grave goods found in the cist of the cemetery (Solsona) and date from the Neolithic period. These beads were found around the neck of the only body buried in this cist. One of the disc-shaped ones was identified by XRD to be callainite.
