Description
This genuine ancient Teotihuacan jade amulet has been set in a modern 14 karat gold pendant.

Ancient Teotihuacan in the valley of Mexico was famous for its stone sculpture. Especially the lifelike masks whose exact function remains mysterious. Here, in jade of delicate green, is a mask of the classical style, depicting a figure with open, laughing mouth. It is impossible to say whether this carving represents a real person, yet to wear it in pendant form is to share its benevolent protection with the person who first wore it so long ago.
