Wow! This necklace really is a statement piece! The beads of the necklace test as glass, but the focal piece, the carved Mayan/Aztec Indian head is carved rock crystal. The chunky nature of the hand drilled glass beads compliment and do not overwhelm the carved face. Threaded through the glass beads and the rock crystal is a sterling silver chain that has elongated links that have been soldered together. It has a very 30s/40s modern feel to it. This piece is pre-eagle as there are no stampings present other than the maker's mark with 925 integrated into it.
Some chips to the glass beads, from use over the years. The rock crystal is in beautiful condition with only a tiny flea bite on the back edge near the top of the headdress, and two little scratches/flea bites to lower lip.
