Substantial double sided vintage Taxco pendant with crushed stone filling in around the Aztec designs made of copper and brass. I’ve seen crushed stone pendants or medallions of from Mexico and the majority are more coarse and set into a clay or other type of fixative. This pendant has more finely crushed stone that appears to be mixed or set in a shiny substance almost like an enamel or shellac type material. (could also contain some abalone shell, there are some small flickers and flash that could be associated with the iridescence of abalone.) The shiny surface is slightly raised above the sterling frame on both sides.

The frame and bail of the pendant are solid silver. The bail has some minor bends due to weight and wear and does not come off. It is part of the pendant and displays several hallmarks including the Eagle 3, indicating it was made by a Taxco registered designer. Eagle marks ceased to be used for designer origination identification by 1980. It also has Taxco, Mexico and 925 impressed in a circle around a set of initials. I cannot identify the initials but they represent the designer’s signature.

The pendant without the O ring at the top is just over 2” in diameter. With the attached O ring it is 2 ¼” tall by just over 2” wide. The bail is a ½” in length making the piece a total drop of 2 ¾”. The piece weights 1.6 ounces or 46 grams. The weight of the pendant is due to the stone and other metals along with silver. Silver does not contribute the majority of the weight.
