The historic city of Agadez is located in northern Niger. This city was founded in the 11th century and is the center of Tuareg culture. The Agadez Cross symbol is ancient and predates Islam in the area. It is still used today in many artworks including the pendant on this delicate necklace. This piece features a chain of small black beads and long antique silver beads, highlighting the Agadez Cross pendant which measures 1.375" by 1".
