Before we describe this vintage brooch, we know you are interested in the astrological meaning of the crab. If not skip to the next section; we will not be hurt. The crab is the fourth sign of the zodiac. Its month range is from June 22 to July 21st.” Crabs” are “tried and true” tend to cling to tradition, but are changeable. They are well defended on the outside but soft on the inside. They are caretakers. In essence, they are represent the receptive but profoundly powerful and encompassing female force in nature. Now for this vintage brooch/pin. The crab is set in a combination of gold tone and, mind you, gold plated metal. It is open in design so that he outer periphery is made of arcs encircling the inner crab. Between this boundary and the crab we find genuine coral and turquoise stones. There are twenty-five stones highlighting the brass scalloped mounting where our central focus, the all encompassing crab is placed. The crab itself is casted with green crystal eyes. And its legs (not to be eaten) are finely constructed. The pin/brooch measures 2” by 2 1/8” in its oval form. The back seems to have a bit of tarnish, and seeing the reflection of the stones, it appears green as in vergis. It is not, however, but simply reflection. Even if this isn’t your birthday sign, or that of a loved one, the power of being female is enough reason for anyone to wear this unusual brooch. It is sure to be a conversation piece or at least an object of admiration.
