Lovely older medal or medallion for the Virgin Mary shown in her apparition as Our Lady of Lourdes in Lourdes France to Saint Bernadette, also shown in the image at the grotto. Lovely faux ruby red and emerald green jewels on each side and a faux diamond at the top. This is a reliquary medal, with a plastic bubble container on the back with what we assume are pieces of soil or other objects from the apparition site. This lovely medal measures 3/4" across and is in very nice condition with only the slightest wear from age. Included is the chain the prior owner used, of a gold tone metal, 19" long. This medal is twice as lovely as the photos, we just could not get those faux jewels to show up well in the pictures.
