In the first image on the attachment ring is marked 18 in Arabic which is for 18 K gold, the attachment ring also has a noter mark which I could not decipher but it seemed to be in hebrew?! Weighs 1.3 grams. The Quran dimensions are approximately 1.25 x 1 cm (0.5 x 6/16 inches) excluding the attachment basel. There is also a mark on the side which would represent the binder but that is somewhat faded. Such pendants would only be seen in Museums, and if any are still left in circulation they would be handed down from mother to daughter or father to son.
