Ancient Roman Carnelian Gemstone with a Beautiful Facing head of Medusa-Gorgona. Masterfully cutted from a skillfully hand with a fantastic style which ''carries'' this small piece of ancient roman art.
Some small and unsignificant areas of worn surface, otherwise almost intact.
This ''ivory'' white colour is due to a burning in antiqity but makes it unusual and even more charming with it.
Date: 1st.-3rd. Century AD.
Purchased by the current owner in 2014 in Austria, Wien from Collector fair.
