I haven't posted much lately but I pop in and out for a look 'n a lurk now and again. I hope you're all well.
I found this beaut in a job lot of jewellery I bought recently, most of which appeared to have a Native Anerican feel to it. The lady I bought it from is an aid worker and travels extensively so anything is possible. This was very black and dirty and I've been working away at it for weeks with a soft brush and its come up nice. It still looks coated under a loupe and I haven't found any markings yet. It looks, feels, and smells like silver and doesn't respond to a strong magnet but I think it may be nickel silver or German silver. I got excited by the stone at first as I thought it might be Citrine but it feels warmer like glass. No bubbles though, that I can see.
I bet Kyratango will be able to help me out there though - Hi Kyra! - and as always I'll be very grateful for your input and company.
