Our gorgeous estate pin is adorned with a Picasso Marble set on a geometric copper base with black enameling. It measures 2-1/2'' x 2-1/2''. This stunning pin is hallmarked with a conjoined AB. It is in wonderful condition with possibly a small chip on the under corner of the stone.
Picasso Marble is a rock native to Utah. Picasso has a beautiful array of intertwining blacks, browns, and tans that, at first look, resembles a cubist painting (which is were the name picasso comes from). Picasso is a relatively soft stone (4-5 on the Mohs hardness scale) that was formed as lava was forced through fractures in limestone millions of years ago thus giving the stone its grey, tan & black streaks.
