This lucky elephant with trunk up is carved of dyed green calcite, which many mistakenly call Green Onyx or "Mexican Jade". The hand carved stone is set on a solid silver back with six prongs that wrap around to hold her tightly. Finished with a roll over safety clasp. This piece dates from the era before the eagle mark system was adopted, so pre-1948.
Stamped on reverse SILVER MADE IN MEXICO. Tests as sterling silver.
Weighs 16 grams.
In Very Good Vintage Condition, with a slight bend to the pin stem, and the wear and patina appropriate for its age. We have not attempted to clean the brooch in any way.
