Charmstone
Add to album

This crystal ball charmstone is enclosed by silver mounts dating from the 16th or 17th century.

A suspension loop is attached to the silver mounts, to which a chain could be attached.

The chain may have allowed the charmstone to be worn around the neck. It is more likely however that it was used to dip the charm in water which could be given to people or animals as a drink to cure disease or prevent illness.
