I found this little turtle for a few dollars the other day. Looks like sterling abalone marcasite and the eyes are some kind of redish stone. Not exactly sure about those. Enjoy!

    I love turtles I see yours has a .823 on it which is usually European so if your stones are Marcasite I would then say it's a good chance the eyes are Ruby & shell is Opal I am always subject to be wrong

    I agree with Zowie.

    Hi zowie and amberorse. THanks for the comments, the first time I looked at the piece under a microscope I had a feeling the eyes were rubys. I didn't want to jump to any conclusions. So could this be a valuable piece? Thanks everyone for the loves!

    Can I ask where you see an .823? I am pretty sure that is a .925 no????
  5. MattyG MattyG, 4 years ago
    I clearly see the 925 but what is the other marking to the left?
  6. BHock45 BHock45, 4 years ago
    hey mattyg, I am pretty sure that says "S.SO" I have no idea what that means though. THanks!

    similar I should say
  9. Zowie Zowie, 4 years ago
    Defiantly .823 the other marks are initials of maker or company as many well known makers worked for different companies find this out & maybe you can find designer. Yes they could well be Rubies

    I put my money on 925

    Unless there is another different photo, I can readily see 925 on the last photo. Still a nice Silver Turtle...n'est-ce-pas? RER (BOB)

    That's okay I'll take you up on that because I have no money

    I have none either, lol, and don't think i'm picking on you or being a meanie, we just happen to have a difference of opinion twice in a week. I apologize in advance if I was taken wrong. By law I have to wear glasses when I drive but see small stuff very well, and have a professional LCD magnifier for the nano-sized stuff. xoxo

    BHock I don't have a problem we are all allowed our own thinking. I'm as blind as a bat & need new glasses whatever way it goes we both love it that's what counts. Have a really good day & hope to hear & see more of you. You always have good information. Zowie

    See BHock someone else agrees with you told you I was blind as a bat. Ha Ha no offence was taken on my part would love to know letters.

    Hey Zowie, no problem. I always appreciate and value your opinion. You always help me out, and I am sure you help others. Thanks for taking the time to help me!!! Have a great night!
