About this object

A pendant in dark green stone with a polished surface. The outline is a rounded rectangle and the cross-section is lenticular. There is a crescent-shaped hole in the centre with beveled edges and a groove running into it on each side from the thinner, straighter edge.

The thicker, ungrooved, outer edge is very blunt and fractured, all other edges are sharp.
