    Trade bead?

    Hey everyone found this bead in a field, am not sure if it is a trade bead or more modern. I think it’s made of either ceramic or glass. It is hard, but it could be plastic..Click image for larger version.

    Maybe the plastic insert for a compression plumbing fitting. ?
    (It probably has a name, but I'm not a plumber!!)

    Stick it with a hot pin. You'll know if it's plastic. Gary

    It does look similar to a Dutch glass trading Bead but given the seam that probably disqualifies it.
