The sphere of Rock Crystal is held within a cage of silver which encases from one tipped point to the other about 2/3s of the stone; the stone twists around but I think you'd have to work hard to get it to pop out! As with all true Rock Crystal orbs, it flips and magnifies text when you read through it. There's a good size bale at the top and it hangs on a more recent 22 sterling rope chain. The pendant is unmarked but tests as solid silver.The chain is marked STERLING by the clasp. The stone measures 2.0cm wide. With the bale at the top, it's total length is 3.5cm. It weighs 21.2 grams with the chain.
Condition: Very good uncleaned antique condition. Just the usual light marks to the silver which you'd expect on an antique item.
