Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Science of Gems, Jewels, Coins, and Medals: Ancient and Modern

Another form of seal is the very primitive one of a flattish round chalcedony pebble, with sufficient ground off one edge to afford space for engraving a subject, and a hole being made through the middle to receive a string; as a chalcedony, brought from Nineveh, having a very rough attempt in intaglio of a winged horse, the Phoenician symbol Sometimes the hole was enlarged enough to admit a finger. This shape was sometimes modified by being made of an oblong instead of a circular pebble, and the hole made near the end opposite to the intaglio, - these being evidently formed from chalcedony pebbles of an oblong shape. Some were made approaching a pyramidal shape, but these are of a later date, and present more elaborate lapidary work and we have had modern seals made of much the same form, of amethyst, crystal, and other stones, either bored near the top, to receive a ring, or suspended by a golden or other metallic loop - and these are sufficiently orna mental.
