This is a really rare, authentichandmade Tibetan Crystal & Silver Crucifix that I picked up in Lhasa back in 2007.

This piece was expertlyhand crafted by artisans in the Shannan region of Tibet.
Dimensions: Approx 1.5 inches X 1 inch (can be seen in the photos).
Materials:Crystal & Silver
Age: Circa 1930.
