1.25î gold pendant which opens to two small photos. The original glass is still present on the left side, absent on the right side. No photos present, but this appears to have been for small tin-type photos, possibly from the circa 1860-1865 period. One side of the pendant has four chambers artistically arranged by a jeweler. Two large segments are a rosie milky quartz with native gold throughout. The rose color is from oxidized iron staining in the quartz occurring naturally. The two small stones at top and bottom of the jewelers design are triangles of tiger-eye, which would have been equally rare as the gold in the mid nineteenth century. Very fine condition.
