This unique authentic Central American jade necklace employs jade elements of different tones of green and 18K gold spacers. Worn by Pre-Hispanic nobility of the region, the jade tubes and centre amulet, depicting an armadillo, are all copies of such originals seen in the Costa Rican Jade Museum in the capital of San José. The chosen cut of jade for the centre piece is a dark green with interesting green grey-ish ribbing throughout.
