Seller: selectible-eclectibles (49) 100%, Location: Poway, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 293162840818 Large axe god carved pendant made of polished green quartz (aventurine). The elite class of the Mesoamerican culture typically wore these pendants. It has the classical Costa Rican characteristics of pre-Columbian jade carvings with the upper figure of a face and the lower part the shape of an axe. Aventurine, not as prevalent as jade from this area, has been used for several melleniums for stone carving with examples found in both south and central America. Contact me for a link to the British Museum to verify this information. Aventurine is a form of quartz, characterized by its translucency and the presence of platy mineral inclusions that give a shimmering or glistening effect termed aventurescence. Aventurine, like jade, has a hardness on Moh's mineral scale that is similar to jade. Date of this item is unknown. The axe god is 7 7/8" tall, 1 3/8" wide. Material: Stone
