Exquisite antique lava cameo bracelet made in the 1860’s
A brief history on lava cameos:
Pompeii and Herculaneum were two cities buried in 79 A.D. by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and covered by ash and lava until rediscovered in 1748. When Edward George Bulwyer-Lytton published The Last Days of Pompeii in 1834, it increased the desirability for lava cameos.
