This handsome cross pin (that also has a bail to double as a pendant) is by circa 1970. It has a geometric design of copper and onyx inlaid with sterling silver and turquoise. It has 3 layers: the top is the copper, that is skillfully cut for the inlay; the next layer is the onyx and the bottom is sterling. The back is signed “Tono” (in script, with a tilde over the “n”), “HECHO EN MEXICO” – “STERLING TAXCO 925” (in a circle around a conjoined) “AC” - “PIEDRA NEGRA” (translates to “black stone” - onyx) and “T 138.” It measures 2 5/8” x 2” x 1/8” and is in very good condition. It has good heft.
