Beautiful antique Jugendstil vintage 1880s to 1900s era Art Nouveau belt buckle or brooch with a lily, cattail and griffin motif design and I believe the emerald green is antique green tourmaline, a common gemstone used in the Victorian Jewelry era. A striking design~!

The metal is quite an ornate botanical design on what looks like early brass. It shows only light wear, could use cleaning though I like the old patina, and the early Victorian C clasp is in working order.

It measures 3" long x 1 9/16".

A very stunning piece of antique jewelry with an unusual color ~!

Tourmaline is popular with gem collectors because it is bright and can come in almost any color. Due to its popularity, tourmaline mining is common and has existed since the early 19th century. Between 1898 and 1914, the Himalayan region was the top producer of raw tourmaline. Today, California is one of the United States' top contributors in tourmaline. It primarily exists in Riverside and San Diego counties. These areas are only outdone by deposits that exist in Brazil.
