IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NO DAMAGE OR REPAIRS, NO CRACKS ON THE CAMEO, AND JUST A COUPLE OF VERY SMALL NATURAL HAIRLINE STRESS MARKS WHICH YOU CAN JUST SEE, AND IS NOT UNCOMMON ON SHELL CAMEOS, AND ONLY MENTIONING FOR ACCURACY.

NYX IS THE GODDESS OF NIGHT WITH HER HEAD TILTED DOWN AND HER EYES SHUT, SHE HAS THE VEIL OF NIGHT AROUND HER HEAD ON THE LEFT SIDE, WHICH HAS CLOSED POPPY FLOWER HEADS ATTACHED ON IT AND CARVED IN HIGH RELIEF AND A TWO-TONE COLOR. HER FACE, NECK AND MOST OF THE VEIL, ARE JUST IN THE ONE WHITE COLOR. THE VEIL CONTINUES TO THE RIGHT OF HER FACE BUT IS LESS PROMINENT.

SHE WAS ALSO ONE OF THE FIRST CREATED GODS OR "PROTOGENOS", AND WAS A FIGURE OF EXCEPTIONAL POWER AND BEAUTY AND WAS EVEN FEARED AND RESPECTED BY ZEUS. THE BEZEL AROUND THE CAMEO HAS BEEN TESTED BY A JEWELLER AND IT IS AT LEAST 9 CARAT GOLD, AND EVEN THE C AND T CLASP AND THE PIN ARE GOLD TOO.
