There is only 1 item left in stock.
The quintessential Zuni sunface symbol is representative of good harvest and prosperity. It is usually accompanied by the all-seeing "God's eye" that is the centerpiece here.  This somewhat older piece can be either a brooch or a pendant.  It has a hinged pin on the back that enables it to pin-on as a brooch, and it also has an eye-loop to slide a chain through.  The tips on the surface are orange spiney oyster.  The lighter color portion is either older mother-of-pearl, or light-colored rose quartz.  It is much more beautiful that the photo represents.  To add to the allure, it is dome-shaped rather than flat—giving it a more three-dimensional appearance. The complicated design is made quaint by it's age-old hand-made appearance.  It's a very sweet piece of jewelry.  And, it comes with the pictured 18-inch, solid Sterling box chain (about a $40 retail value).   Weight of the pendant is 9.1-grams, or .32-ounces.  Hallmarked "V and E Niiha."  Always complimentary Priority shipping within the U.S.
