Dates to the late Victorian era, circa 1900.

Crafted in solid 18K yellow gold. Not hallmarked, but carefully acid tested on both top and bottom.

From a collection from a prominent North Caroline lawyer and collector, whose stick pin and gem/mineral sample collections were quite large and impressive. Much of the collections were donated to museums but I was lucky enough to acquire a portion of his stick pin collection. Many of the pieces appear to have been custom made for the fellow, in order to showcase gems and minerals he had acquired.

This pin is set with a large polished cabochon of what I believe is quartz. The stone is veined with black (possibly Morion quartz) and inset with a russet orange coloration. The stone measures approximately 16 mm by 9.5 mm, and has a height of approximately 8 mm.

The stickpin measures 2.72" from top to bottom, with a top portion of 0.79" by 0.52". This piece weighs 5.1 grams.

Condition is very good, with no damages or repairs.
