Pyu Carnelian Tiger Choker Necklace 24K.Chain -100BC
Price on request

A rare carved calcedony tiger with its 4 paws, upper back, and tail in carnelian red (presence of iron oxides in the stone). The body of the tiger is elongated with a curled up tail. Tigers of this type and age are difficult to find, especially ones that are intact. The 24 karat heavy gold woven chain and gold bar (through the tiger) were recently added, making it wearable as a choker necklace..

Period: 100 BC - 200 AD, Burma/India

Size: Length = 6.2 cm (2-5/16 inches)

Condition: Very good. With no breaks or chips.
