Moss Agate!



Elegant moss agates set in beautifully polished golden bezels.  The moss agates captivate with a mesmerizing swirl of green strands reminiscent of seaweed drifting in filtered sunlight beneath the ocean's surface.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1960.

Moss agate is is a fine grained variety of quartz with seaweed-like inclusions.  The intertwined colors - ranging from dark forest greens to pale golden greens and every shade in between - create fantastic verdant "seascapes" that rival the finest emeralds.  Moss agate was particularly favored as an accent stone for gentleman's accessories in the early 1900s.

Larter & Sons maker's mark. (J9412)

These cufflinks were created by Larter Sons,  a maker of fine cufflinks during much of the late 19th and 20th centuries.  The gold purity mark ("14") and maker's mark of Larter & Sons (a shirt stud in profile) are stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks.  The cufflinks are secured on the cuff with sturdy "bullet" toggles and raised armatures.  The edges and ends of the toggles and armatures are gently rounded to ease their passage through a button hole.
