I don't honestly know, nor can I remember where it comes from. It has a hole going through the middle, as if it were a bead, or maybe an amulet. It is a vary satisfying ornament - nice colour and nice weight. The snake pattern seems to be fairly unusual. There are two snakes curling around till they meet in the middle of its back. I haven't tried to make out the hieroglyphics, but they do seem to be real symbols and not just squiggles. 9cms long by 4cms high Please ask any questions Take a look at my other items!
