It was earlier reported as originating from 40,000 years ago and made for an ancient woman by a Paleolithic craftsman Two fragments of the bracelet of a width of 2.7cm and a thickness of 0.9 cm were found. Near one of the cracks was a drilled hole (pictured) with a diameter of about 0.8 cm'I believe this beautiful and very fragile bracelet was worn only for some exceptional moments,' he said.
The manufacturing technology used in the bracelet is seen as being more typical of a later period, for example the Neolithic era, which began around 12,000 years ago.
A stone bracelet believed to have been made by a Paleolithic man could revolutionise our understanding of early human development.
Scientific analysis suggests that the enchanting find is a 65,000 to 70,000 years old.
Scientists from the universities of Oxford and Wollongong in Australia are due to meet this month with Russian colleagues.
The academics will analyse and interpret data from tests on the age of the soil layer in which the bracelet and other artefacts, including a pre-historic needle, were found.
The soil around the bracelet was also dated using oxygen isotopic analysis.Dr Derevyanko said: 'Two fragments of the bracelet of a width of 2.7cm and a thickness of 0.9 cm were found.'The estimated diameter of the find was 7cm.'Near one of the cracks was a drilled hole with a diameter of about 0.8 cm.Further examination of the site found other artefacts dating as far back as 125,000 years.Dr Shunkov has suggested that the bracelet indicates the Denisovans were more advanced than Homo sapiens and Neanderthals.
The location of the polished section made it possible to identify the 'top' and 'bottom' of the bracelet and to establish that it was worn on the right hand.'Among the remains of 66 different types of mammal found in the cave were those of extinct woolly mammoths.
