Victorian style vintage oval 18k yellow gold framed oval black onyx micro mosaic floral brooch. The brooch showcases a raised black onyx centerpiece which features a micro mosaic bouquet of purple flowers with green leaves and red and yellow accents. The tiny pieces of colored glass are inlaid into the stone. Accented by a ring of intricate intertwining textured leaves against a solid gold frame with a delicate twisted gold base. The brooch closes with a rolling safety clasp. In very good condition, there are some tiny Knicks along the top edge of the black onyx piece.

The gold is not marked but was acid tested and with a Thermo Scientific electronic metal x-ray machine for 18K gold. The last photo shows the exact metal content.

The onyx piece is 4.2 cm long by 3.5 cm wide gold frame is 5 mm wide by 7 mm high.

Micro mosaic pieces gained popularity during the Victorian era as souvenirs for wealthy travelers conducting their world tour trips. This mosaic differs from most of the pieces attributed to that era so it may be a newer vintage piece.
