Vintage Dendrite Moss Agate Semi Precious Stone Oval Pin Brooch
$48.00 This is an early vintage Dendrite Agate brooch also known as a Moss Agate. This semi-precious stone is commonly known as a moss agate because it appears to have moss inside the stone. This Dendrite agate is translucent whitish-gray in color accompanied by brown and rust shooting inclusions which is actually crystallized iron impurities. The brooch measures around 1-1/2" by 7/8" and weighs 5.8 grams. The style of the clasp on this brooch leads me to believe that it was made around the 1930's. The brooch is not signed so I cannot determine the metal used. I have priced this brooch based on the agate and have not considered the metal that has been used. If it is gold, you hit the jack pot!! The pin is silver tone and the trim around the stone is gold tone. A dendrite agate is not actually a true agate; it is actually a variety of chalcedony quartz. These stones were popular in the Victorian era. The roll over clasp is very secure when worn.
