    Hi folks

    finally got out and about today, the heat at the moment has been totally draining

    found some interesting bits

    dragonfly brooch is marked 925, other hallmark bit is worn, seems a nice quality

    the shell/pearl necklace pendant is faintly/worn marked 925 on back, not quite sure what the stone is,

    the glass carnelian coloured bead necklace glows under uv for some reason

    little marcasite silver ring seems quite old

    not sure if the fish is jade or not, looks modern

    little stud earrings are marked silver, but not sure if turquoise or not, as they seem a bit even in colour

    any thoughts or info on any of the pieces would be a great help

    I like the light-up beads! Manganese glass?

    the dragonfly has a missing black stone but should be easy to fill with a bit of black enamel paint

    anyone have an idea of its age ?

    has little brown stone eyes, garnets ?
