It came from outer space.

Ancient Egyptian beads that is:

Some of the world’s earliest known iron artifacts — ancient Egyptian beads — came from outer space and were hammered out of meteorites, archaeologists say.

The beads, in the collection of the Petrie Museum of University College London, were hammered from pieces of meteorites rather than iron ore and predate the emergence of iron smelting by 2,000 years, they said.

Beads of the Gods, so to speak.

I am always amazed at the technology ancient civilizations possessed thousands of years ago.
