Here is a photograph of a very old medallion with the likeness of St George etched onto a very thin piece of what appears to be perhaps pearl. It looks as if the piece has been set in a more modern thin gold frame.
This is a memento of a friend who's mother had this and obtained it sometime in the late 30's to late 50's while in Cuba before the revolution.
I held the small piece up to some light with my left hand and took the photo with the right hand.
The age of this treasure is thought to be over 150 years old, but there is no way to determine who made it, how old it really is or where it came from.
