The Munsell Bead Colour Charts are perfect for referencing and analysing colours found in beads. Whether you are an archaeologist, scientist or other professional, the five pages of the Bead Colour Charts offer a fast, convenient method for identifying the colour of beads to help identify classification so that they may be communicated accurately.
The colour of a bead can be used to tell a story about the bead itself. Just like beads have special characteristics so do the colours used on and within the beads. The ability to classify and communicate a colour easily allows for a greater understanding of the bead. The colouring of a bead can be used to indicate the region of the world that the bead is from and the types of materials used in the creation of the bead.
These charts will allow you to measure and more precisely name colours with a system in use by hundreds if not thousands of other bead researchers, so as to establish consistency across reports by unrelated individuals.
By providing a coherent set of comparison colours in use throughout the field, the charts enable beads, from one archaeological site or beaded object, to be accurately compared to beads found at another site or on a different object.
