This antique stamp is one of a kind in size as well as detail. Likely 19th century or earlier and based on some research I've found that the engraved seal is what's called a ecclesiastical heraldry, or basically a priest coat of arms. It most likely belonged to a priest at one time. Don't know the authenticity of the metal and the small stones garnering it but I'm pretty sure the main carved stone is citrine. The emphasis is on HUGE stone. Even for citrine this is really big. Haven't seen anything for sale anywhere this big. Don't have exact size of stone but likely anywhere between 200-250 carats. The eagle comes on and off. Weighs 9.5 ounces total and stands over 4 inches tall when eagle is erected.
