Seller: hotan2009 (448) 100%, Location: Aliso Viejo, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 233110999495 Lovely PreColumbian Tumbaga piece alloy of different metals from the Tairona people of Columbia representing a Shaman Golden Eagle Figure with nose disc adornment. Pendant has been attached to a lovely necklace with gold tone beads back in the 1950’s. This Tumbaga alloy is magnetic which means it’s probably 1500-1700’s because before that the iron ore content was much less and had much more copper but with the arrival of the Spaniards iron ore typically increased vs the copper content due to availability of leftover Spanish iron discarded objects that were smelted with the gold and silver and other metal alloys vs the copper which Spaniards found more valuable for decoration and thus became harder and more valuable to acquire. From an estate collection in Santa Barbara, California acquired with several authentic high karat pre columbian gold frogs and gold harpie pendants. Material: Tumbaga
