A fabulous antique Victorian malachite brooch, hailing from Scotland from the late 19th century, c1880! Also known as Scottish pebble jewelry, the good-sized circular brooch is crafted in sterling silver with stunning malachite sections inlaid into the design. The malachite pieces are a vibrant green hue and display variation of striking banded patterns. The malachite was likely sourced and cut abroad, in Germany which was a main source of malachite in the 19th century. Separating the malachite is fine etched silver lines which flow around to the edge of the design, forming a curvilinear border. A wonderful contrast and finishing touch. The back has a pin and c-loop connection, as well as a small ring which was likely utilized for a safety chain.

A superb piece of Scottish history which would add an impressive accessory to the scarf, lapel or wherever you desire to show it off. Charming!

The condition of the brooch is very good. There are a few small hairline surface fissures to the malachite (seen under magnification) otherwise fantastic Victorian condition with no damage to the silver, setting or clasp (which remains in good working order!) Overall, superb for her age!
