large form and crafted using highly-banded green slate, retains an old collector's label bearing the following: H-114, presumably referring to Berwell Thomas' collection. Two groups of four, and seven "tally marks" appear on opposites sides of the pendant at its narrow end. Traces of mineral encrustations are present on one side.
