Victorian hard stone cameo brooch that can be worn as a pendant
Cameos are more often found carved into shell. This antique cameo is hand carved from a very hard material from the quartz family. Specifically from the crypto-crystalline family, it is from a material called sardonyx. Naturally layered, it allows for the carver to emphasise and highlight the two naturally banded colours.
