A necklace composed of translucent and opaque semi precious stone beads, carved in tubular, conic and round shapes. The beads have a white color and are probably made of Mexican jade, also called Mexican onyx (which is calcite, not real jade nor onyx). The beads are pierced and interconnected by links made of metal wire. The necklace has an oval pendant, also made of white semi precious stone, in a gold tone setting made of flattened metal wire, which ends in a simple loop shaped bail. The front side of the pendant is engraved with a round Aztec motif. Under magnifier a very small hole is visible in the center of the motif, which indicates that the motif has been engraved mechanically. The necklace has a simple clasp: a hook made of wire. The item is not signed, it dates probably to the 2nd half of the 1960s-1970s, when ethnic jewelry was fashionable. Probably made in Mexico, acquired in the USA. Very good vintage condition. Nice material and a beautiful semi translucent pendant with a cloudy effect in the stone.
