Earring. Fröjel Marble, lapis lazuli

Earring. Fröjel Marble, lapis lazuli

There are several similar finds of this type of marble on Gotland, the largest measuring 4,8 cm in diameter. It was found at Göstavs in Fröjel parish, hence the name.

These honed, silver-incased rock crystals were probably worn as ornaments, but can also be used as magnifying glasses. The marbles are unique to Gotland in the Nordic area and most likely the honed crystal was imported from Persia and later incased and finished on Gotland.

10th-13th century A.D.
