This wonderful vintage brooch is marked Sterling. It has at its center a Dragon's breath stone. The internet says that dragon's breath was made in the early 1900's Dragon's Breath aka; Mexican Glass Opal, Glass Jelly Opal, or Glass Fire Opal are names that the stone has picked up. Please remember that these stones are glass and not an opal! Dragon's Breath is a glass that was made to resemble a Mexican fire opal. Dragon's breath was made by adding metal to the molten glass. This is what gives it the electric blue and purple flashes or ripples inside the stone. This brooch measures 1-1/2" x almost 1" and is in beautiful condition.
