The amethyst flower is beautifully carved and head in by 2 prongs. The three leaves all have a modern design that really show off the flower and the pin. This pin is a very early piece that really shows of the craftsman of Mexican craftsmanship using a modern and stylized art done in silver. In the book by P. Morrill and C.
