This is a comma-shaped bead made from dark green jade. Such crescent moon-shaped beads, referred to as<em> gogok</em>, were used to decorate golden crowns, clothing, and belts. This example, which was attached to other ornaments via the hole in its head, is typical of comma-shaped beads of the Three Kingdoms period. Three parallel lines are incised across the hole, from which four more incised lines radiate upwards.<br />
