About this Piece

Mexican Tribal Mask

The carved tribal mask was popularised in the Art Deco period in Mexican jewellery. Inspired by the pre-columbian Aztec and Mayan civilisations and carved out of various stones - onyx, calcite, amethyst, tiger's eye, sometimes cast in bronze or copper - the mask features in necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets.

Tiger's Eye

A semi-precious yellow-brown banded quartz with a silky lustre, so called because of it's similarity to a tigers eye.
