The amulet is at its utmost perfect condition and was not damaged over time. This is because when it was found, the amulet was wrapped with wax and contained in a golden duck vessel with a lid. The outside of the duck was coated with a layer of black lacquer before covering it with thin gold foils, hence water and air could not enter the vessel. The finely crafted handmade case is made of gold (23.16Karat) weight at 18 grams solid gold.This amulet is a hand down from my family. All pictures were taken by me not stock photo. In some countries, I will carry by myself. Please contact me before purchasing.
