Seller: selectible-eclectibles (46) 100%, Location: Poway, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 291954977114 Large bird effigy carved pendant made of polished green quartz (aventurine). The elite class of the Mesoamerican cultures typically wore these pendants. It has the classical Costa Rican characteristics of pre Columbian jade carvings. Aventurine, not as prevalent as jade from this area, has been used for several millenniums for stone carving with examples found in both South and Central America. Contact me for a link to the British Museum to verify this information. Aventurine is a form of quartz, characterized by its translucency and the presence of platy mineral inclusions that give a shimmering or glistening effect termed aventurescence. Aventurine has a hardness on Moh's mineral hardness scale that is similar to jade. Date of this item is unknown. It is 7 5/8" long and 7/8" wide. Material: Stone
