    West German marked clasp and look at it under UV! Orquidea are a competitor to Majorica.

    The uranium ones are glass, the pearls are that fish scale stuff. Don't think they're ever been worn.

    Those and the uranium glass were more than a pound originally!

    Orquidea isn't cheap and I suspect the uranium wasn't either.

    @Ownedbybear What do you mean by fish scale stuff? I have never heard that term.

    I know! (blows kisses at Kate)

    Fish scale: Mallorcan pearls are made using a glass core and then coated with a stuff that includes fish scale. Majorica did it first. Lovely quality and often in silver or gold.
