This sweet turtle is so beautiful that I took it to a jeweler to have the metal tested. I thought it might be a low grade of gold but it isn't, However, it is set with a real semi precious stone - smoky quartz. The turtle can be worn as a pin or as a pendant. There is a loop behind its head for a chain. He measures about 1 3/4 inches x 1 1/8 inches and is in excellent condition. I am also listing a smaller, very similar turtle.
