A Victorian oval agate brooch in an unmarked gold setting. Typically Victorian is the length of the pin which extends beyond the diameter of the brooch and would be pinned into the fabric of the dress as an additional safety feature. The mount is fitted with a loop so that it could be worn as a pendant, or a safety chain could be attached.

There is a spot of what looks like the wrong sort of solder around the pad to which the loop is attached, but it would not be visible in wear. There is also a tiny chip out of the edge of the stone, which is visible in the photos. The stone is slightly domed, very highly polished and therefore difficult to photograph. The larger photos are, of course, showing you much more detail than can be seen with the naked eye. The brooch measures about 1.4 inches by 0.9 inches.

Tested as gold but difficult to determine exact carat (karat). British gold can be as low as 9ct.

Very light and wearable.
