This lovely old black cameo is of an undetermined early plastic. It does not respond to any kind of testing, and I'm not going to give you that old chestnut about a certain plastic that starts with "B" not testing if it's black. I think a lot of dealers use that to trick people into making purchases when it isn't necessarily true. All I can do is tell you the facts about this piece. It's heavy, much heavier than celluloid. The cameo part is molded, but the outer details are carved. At 2 7/8" long x 2" wide, it will be a beautiful focal point for any outfit. The hardware is an old embedded 1-piece C-style clasp. The clasp functions well, but has some corrosion. The pin wiggles a little, but it’s not going anywhere. There is minor patina, especially evident on the uncarved area/back of the piece. This is common on carved vintage plastics. Take what you will from all of this, in any case it is definitely one of those classic pieces. If you're into plastics, you should have more than one black cameo and you should wear them.
