Antique Victorian Crystal and Smokey Quartz Fly Pendant

About

Photographs and words do not communicate the allure of this unique, clear smoky crystalline quartz on which sits a three dimensional rock crystal fly, complete in detail with engraved wings and gold antennae. I cannot stop admiring it, its faceted edges and the grace of the insect that appears to have just arrived on the smooth surface. The legs and antennae are 14 Kt gold as is the chunky bale, large enough to accommodate a thick chain or ribbon. The pendant is Victorian c. 1870 and is worked by hand. The beauty is show stopping . The fly can be seen through the back of the quartz as the clarity is pure. Perfect Condition
