A well modelled silver lizard. It is studded with graded marcasite (iron pyrites) all over it’s body and it has two red paste eyes. Lizards of all kinds have a long history representing good luck. In Ancient Greece and Rome lizards also symbolised wisdom and good fortune, so this brooch is a lovely piece of jewellery to wear.
