A Victorian Brooch made from a large striped Agate polished cabochon which has a brass color metal brooch fitting attached to the back.
The domed Brooch measures 1 3/8 inches side to side and 1 1/8 inches top to bottom. The Brooch fastens with a 'C' clasp. The white metal pin looks like a replacement and the tip of the pin is broken so it is not sharp at the end. It will still pierce through looser woven fabric but not finer woven fabric - although the point could be filed to sharpen it.
In good condition, there is some slight damage to the edge of the stone at the clasp end and a small nick out of the stone on another edge but these are not too obvious when the brooch is being worn and do not detract from its appearance.
