This is a rather unusual brooch that I recently got. It is unlike any other that I have seen-the large blue glass stone set in a butterscotch color setting. It has a C clasp, which is a bit bent. Thanks for looking

    The large sapphire blue faceted stone is gorgeous, and the carved frame is lovely with the gold highlights in back (bakelite, lucite?) - nice one!

    Jenni, thank you so much. I too am wondering what the setting was made from :)

    What a beautiful brooch!! It looks like Bakelite. It's easy to test, just purchase some Turtle Wax chrome polish (available nearly everywhere) and rub it with a cotton swab. If it turns color, then its Bakelite:)

    Very pretty. I haven't tried turtle wax, but Simichrome works and turns old plastic yellow....
