Marcasite is a genuine, natural gemstone derived from a natural mineral called 'pyrite'. Pyrite is found in many parts of the world, but only a small fraction of it is suitable for the cutting processes required to create marcasite jewelry. Marcasite, both an elegant and fashionable gemstone has been used for personal adornments as far back as in ancient times.
This lovely "Lizard" figural brooch, circa 1960, is sterling silver set with tiny marcasite gems and red crystal eyes. The piece measures 2 1/4" in width, 5/8" in width and has a safety clasp closure. The back is stamped "925", with no damages and original patina.
