A simple sterling silver mounting showcases this lovely, chunky cabochon amber stone with its clear, light reddish-brown color and its collection of delicate spores within. A bit of wire-work around the bezel adds a naturalistic touch. The back of the pin is open to allow light to penetrate the stone. The pin is 1 1/2" X 1" X 1/2" thick. It has a safety catch and is in excellent original condition. There are tiny stamped marks on the pin bar which are hard to make out; they identify the maker, etc. The amber is of the type found around the Baltic Sea; the pin originated in this area and is around 22-40 years old. The pin tests sterling. It weighs 11.2 grams.
