Victorian Moss Agate Gold Brooch



Victorian moss agate and yellow gold brooch circa 1900.


GEMSTONES: one large oval flat-top moss agate stone.

METAL: 9-karat yellow gold.

MEASUREMENTS: approximately 2-5/16” (5.9 cm) horizontal width and 1-3/4” (4.4 cm) vertical width.

CONDITION: high magnification photographs show design details that the brooch is in pristine condition consistent with age and wear. (There are natural cavities visible on the surface and edges of this stone, which is typical of moss agate stones, like this one.)

NOTE: the brooch was photographed in a light box which makes the translucent parts of the moss agate appear more prominent than when it is seen in normal light. the coloring of the moss agate is slightly darker than seen under these lighting conditions.  See side views.
