This wonderful Victorian brooch is made of gutta percha. Gutta Percha is a dark latex sap used for Electrical purposes and jewelry. This brooch was made in the late 1800's and is in beautiful condition. The top, made of gutta percha, is a dark brown and has been carved into a beautiful display of hanging flowers. Dangling from this brooch are faceted jet pieces. I believe these are jet as they are not as hard as glass. Each appears to be naturally faceted. Jet is a type of coal. The brooch with its dangles measures 4" x 1-3/4" and is in beautiful condition.
