purchased this wonderful antique turquoise and brass earring measuring 6 inches from end to end. I'd like to know if you have ever seen one like this and how I would go about selling it for what it is worth! It appears that this could be a museum piece. Thank you

Fossil Pearl

Collage of Pearl with Ruler

I have a large fossil pearl (weight is 3 grams, size is roughly 18mm +/- x 15mm +/-) that I found in my yard - we use seashells extensively in our landscape for mulch - and this pearl was in the shells.

I routinely find fossils of all sorts in the shell - from bone fragments to shark's teeth to coprolite (dino poo). The lady across the street has been a fossil hunter for decades and she agrees that this is indeed a fossil pearl. The area that these fossils come from is approximately 1.2 million years old.

I would like to know if the outer coating that is chipped can be removed without further damage to the pearl, or should it be left alone? It is rather brittle, but the underlying portion seems to be quite solid. I would like to find out the value of it also, if you have any idea about fossil pearls. Any help or information you can give me would be appreciated.

Italian Stone - YUUVBS

by Greg
(Phoenix, AZ USA)

I found a rock on a beach in Capri Italy, and it had the Greek word YUUVBS VV engraved on it. I found out the word means 'naked' and I only assume the VV is the Roman number 55 which may be a date.

Can you tell me if you believe this is worth any money or what sort of an appraiser I should seek out?

Cerberus Cameo

I recently found a white cameo, framed in a shadow box, that features a winged figure, a pitch fork and Cerberus. It is about 2 1/8 in across. The owner, who was South African, said it was very old and she had gotten it many years ago. How do I evaluate the age and value? Thanks!
