Clear, iridescent bicone glass beads are separated by star-shaped bead caps on either side of cast metal beads with a sun motif. Connecter is a blue glass bead with golden stars. Pendant is a two-sided sun with a face (I got it in an order of milagros, but it is not a milagro).

Silibo is a member of the Rada nanchon. She is of Dahomean origin, and is associated with rivers, ponds, and purification.

In some houses, she is considered a wife of Agwe, in others a wife of Agasou.
