This is a very well carved shell cameo. You have a full relief of the face. The shell had two lines in it that were incorporated in the carving. It is not unusual for a shell to grow with a line and not considered a flaw. One across the bust and across the chin. These are not cracks or flaws. There are small natural pearls set in the 10K gold frame. A Lovely cameo from Kansas!
