    The bloke who sells stuff at scrap was there again. So the coin brooch was a whole 2.50 and the big filigree a fiver. Different person sold me the fern, circa 1913 for a whole four pounds. The malachite, another seller thought wasn't silver. Duh. Same person sold me the carved pendant and the teeny tiny ring, which I would love @Any Jewelry to look at please. Five quid with a silver hand mirror thrown in.

    Modern "coral" ring was two, and everything else fifty pence a pop. I know how to spend!

    Nice haul. The 'malachite' cabochon is glass, I did come across who made them but it was a long time ago, if I can recall I will post the name. There's more work in the making of the glass cabochon than would be for polishing a real malachite stone.

    Yup, you can see the malachite is glass from the back. You do have to wonder why!

    @Any Jewelry - yes, the ring with the silver swirls and the two stones. The front is a decent size but the band is minute. I've no clue. ;)

    If I remember right in the 1970/80's malachite for making jewelry,etc. got scarce do to the mines in Africa sending everything to the refiners for the copper content.

    That and some German johnnies no doubt took it as a challenge. The ring really does look like it's straight out of Bali.

    I like the Fern.
    Somewhere I have cufflinks with glass malachite cabochons that are marked Germany. I’d have to dig them out to see how similar they are.
