DescriptionA large circular green stone pendant hangs from a necklace of green glass beads and silver beads and cylinders. The pendant is circular and flat with a small hole in the middle which is lined with a silver decorative ring. This ring is engraved or stamped on one side with small repetitive geometric marks. The green stone is connected to the necklace with a large semi-circular decorative piece of silver which is attached to the top half of the green circular stone. This piece of silver is intricately engraved with geometric designs on the front side. This type of necklace is conceived for the foreign market, but it is worn locally on occasion.
