I researched this necklace as shown below, and it appears to have sold for a very good amount of money recently on Ebay. It almost looks like the same neckace, however, my necklace is missing the closure part, and I improvised putting two links together since it is long enough to fit over the head. The open links on the necklace appear hand carved. I do not believe that glass can be carved. In order to close the necklace I had to match the formation of the links therefore I had an extra piece of chain left over. I tried the scratch test with a needle and it did not leave a mark, and I tried dropping it on a concrete sidewalk extending my arm high up and it did not break. Before I do anything regarding selling I need to be sure of what I have and why I am turning to all of you for help. I uploaded a couple of photos and if you have time and would like to give me a little imput it is appreciate.
Also, if I would like to reply to a comment is there a way of doing so? The last time I asked a question I could not find a reply button. Do we just post questions and answers but there is no way to reply?
Thank you again.
have jewelry with malachite. how do i test. seems warmer than others i know are true genuine malachite stones. tried heating pin & touching to smell plastic but no smell. is there a density of other test. the ice test may not tell plastic as anything warmer than ice will melt it. other real malachite is room temp too.
