I have not cleaned this amulet but will polish up beautifully.

This antique 19th Century sterling silver amulet pendant is worn chiefly in western Rajasthan, India, by Hindu Rajputs, Jats and others.

The amulet pendant is in the shape of a yoni or leaf of the sacred fig tree – the bottom pointing ovule, and die-stamped with two decorative bales and an extension bar down the back for extra support. A silver beaded wire border has been added, and a row of die-stamped leaves, with floral units used to cover the joins. It has a decorative final at the base of the amulet.

The subject of the amulet is Bhumiya Raj a chieftain who died in defence of his property, including villages and their inhabitants. Trusted and feared, the deified spirits of these local heroes protect their community by nightly riding a horse around the village to dispel enemies or evil agents.

The amulet has been tested for high grade silver 92.5% approx.
