This is a most distinctive necklace having a feel of primitive and tribal look. The metal test of silver but mixed with other metals. The Lapis is very blue and has many interesting lines. The necklace is 17 inches and has 1 3/4 inch drop where the pendant drops. The chain is a different coiled and closure is a hook and eye. I am fairly sure this is not American Indian, but what it is I am not sure, but very ethnic and tribal. To you from Kansas a mystery necklace. It is lovely and very interesting.
