Vintage Taxco Pendant Mayan Diety 950 Silver & Malachite Face
The ancient face of a Mayan priest or diety is featured in 3D, in this finely carved vintage 950 silver and malachite Taxco pendant, circa 1980s.
The ancient meso-American style pendant is articulated and features a face carved from green malachite gemstone, with a 950 silver headdress (which is higher than sterling), drop earrings, a malachite mosaic collar, and three sterling cone drops, suspended with round malachite gemstone beads.
The pendant measures approximately 7/8 of an inch wide at its widest point, and hangs approximately 2&3/8 inches in length. It has a non silver jump ring for the bail, weighs 13.7 grams, and is marked “950” and what appears to be “TA-166”.
