If you were a Victorian woman on the Grand Tour...a trip by the upper classes of Northern Europe to experience the art and culture and mild climate of Italy...of course you would come home with as many highly-coveted carved lava stone souvenirs as you could find. The Italian earthy colored lava came from the base of Mt. Vesuvius and was carved into cameos and other magical jewels.

This carved lava floral bouquet oval was set into a pendant of black jet glass (perhaps Whitby) with a finely beveled three way edge.

The pendant measures 1 1/2 inches across by 2 inches high. It's almost 1/2 inch thick. It hangs from an old sterling silver chain (tested) that measures 18 inches.

Through a magnifier, we see a couple of microscopic fleabites at glass edge. One of the flower petals has a crevice that just blends into the carving though it may be a ding in the lava. Overall, this unique old necklace is in excellent antique condition. Circa 1880s. A Grand Tour era grand jewel.
