This is one spectacular piece of vintage Mexican sterling silver. I believe it to be a modern interpretation of the ancient sun stone. It is exquisitely made. The black on the inside of the forms is meant to be there. It is an anodized feature to embellish the sterling. (You sometimes see copper pieces with that same detail.) The brooch measures about 2 5/8 inches x 2 1/2 inches. It is a substantial piece of silver with an incredible design. The back is marked Sterling Taxco R.M. Without the eagle mark I am assuming that this piece is pre-1948. It is in excellent condition with old patina. I have not tried to clean it.
