Pendant (1) - Lapis Lazuli - Mythical Beast - China - mid 20th century
Very good condition, see description - 19×43×62 mm

Vintage / Antique large piece of hand carved Lapis Lazuli.
This is an Asian piece (China), I am not sure of the age of the pendant.
It is a mythical beast, you can see the scales carved on the tail, it looks like a dragon to me if you look at it side on. There is a hole for a necklace.
There are grey streaks that which may be calcite which has aged and contains some pyrite within it. The pyrite is not prominent but you have hint at the front and back.
