About this Piece

Green Onyx

A popular green stone, often carved and used in vintage Mexican jewellery, sometimes referred to as 'Mexican Jade' or 'Green Onyx'. A few different stones were popular with Mexican artisans, sometimes a dyed calcite, agate, chrysoprase or onyx.

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.
