This is a gorgeous vintage cape amethyst carved pendant which measures 40 x 30 x 13mm . It has a good size hole as you can see for stringing purposes or to put on a chain.
The carving on this pendant is similar to what the Chinese do with nephrite jade with a strong relief floral pattern. We purchased this on one of our earlier buying trips in Hong Kong back in the early 1980's.
Cape amethyst is a lavender variety of amethyst ranging from transparent to opaque and variable shades of lilac. This beautiful pendant is well polished and lustrous and we 100% guarantee it to be vintage natural stone from the mid 1980's.
