Offering a stunning, green chrysoprase mask necklace from Mexico.
The metal of this necklace is sterling silver, marked on the chain "sterling" and on the back of the mask pendant as 925.
The necklace has a deep triangular stamp on the back of the pendant. Inside the triangle is written: Hecho En Mexico - ACE - Guadalajara. No eagle mark.
The necklace has four bezel set ovals of green chrysoprase on each side, joined by the huge, 2" long and 1 1/2" wide, mask pendant at the bottom.
The length of the necklace all the way around the inside is 25". Each oval is framed with silver bead work and measures 1 1/2" in length.
I don't know if this is an Olmec or Aztec mask but the piece is simply beautiful. No damage.
