Seller: insaneinvestor (2,264) 100%, Location: Northern California, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391418113908 Condition: Condition: VF++, Material: Gold, Details: FROM THE "SELINUS HOARD" -- ATLANTEAN HIGH-KARAT GOLD ANTIQUITIES -- EBAY 05 -- Ancient Atlantean Triad found personally by me with a home-built metal-detector, in Selinus, Sicily, 1964. Atlantean Triads are found throughout the globe, and are plentiful in the New World as well as the Old. This high-karat Gold & CARNELIAN Atlantean Style Triad is from a personal collection and has been donated for the purpose of the Shaman Shed Project. The carnelian is carved and polished, very ancient, probably far more ancient than the glass commonly found there -- my guess is that the carnelian beads were made about 1200 B.C. and then passed on from generation to generation until they were used here in this ancient Triad. The gold is, of course, undimmed by time -- high-karat gold does not tend to oxidize, thus no rust particles, no tarnish, the gold is pretty much the same as it was thousands of years ago. The gold wire was drawn through thinning plates and was once very easily bent, but is not pliable now. The gold "box" beads were a common beading design element in every culture known on the face of the Earth. Although delicate, this piece is ALL ORIGINAL, as it was made some 3,500 years ago on the west coast of Sicily. Your genuine Ancient Atlantean Triad comes with a glass Charging Dome which is modern, but duplicates the blown-glass and wood base charging domes used in ancient times, from the Paleo Period right up to Roman times. This ancient item has plenty of history, but it is psychically clean, and fully ready to use.
