This silver pin, probably sterling, is unmarked but exhibits sophisticated metalwork. It is composed of a single piece of silver that has been hand-formed and folded to portray a tail and stylized fins. There is some oxidation on the surface of the body, under the fins, most likely from heating the silver to make it more pliable. A chrysoprase cabochon in a bezel mount represents the eye. The pin has a secure rollover clasp. It measures a little over 3 inches long by 1 3/8 inches wide...

The chain appears to be original to the piece and tests as silver, though it is not marked. The stone exhibits a ¼-inch fissure at the edge, apparently the result of an impact. The stone, however, is stable and secure in the bezel mount, and shows not signs of further stress...
