My mom died a couple years ago and while going threw her things I found this Pendant....


Pendant photobucket

My mothers Dad...my Grandpa came from Sicily ....however...I don't think this has anything to do w/ Italy or does it?
It looks like a microscope and (?) What is that that upside down pipe looking deal? Arrrrggg can't figure this out...Masonic ??

Anyways...I sure would be grateful if anyone can help me identify this. Thankyou X's a million!

P.s Mods...I had nooooo idea where this goes...(?)

Not real sure, sorry but am interested as well now. lol

It looks to be science related.

The upside down thing looks like an Alembic, which is used in chemistry but I have no idea what the pendant is.

en.wikipedia.org... says alembics can be used in alchemy, maybe the pendant has to do with that.

Pretty sure it is not Masonic. I have spent a bit of time researching those symbols and haven't ran across your pendant. Good luck in your searching. I can't wait it see the answer.

ETA - may I ask if she graduated with a science degree?

The upside down pipe is actually a retort.

Do you have any pictures of the back side? Did your mom attend college? It could possibly be an gift/award for some chemistry related achievement, or finishing a class/project.

The back has nothing on it. My Mom did not go to college, but what you say may make sense....

The nearest I can find is on this link

osulibrary.oregonstate.edu...

Got some of the same equipment by the looks of things but obviously not the same pendant. This seems to be just a medal.
Maybe this might narrow down the search paramaters a little?

The vessel/flask object behind the microscope...is that a science related object or is it from the medical field?

Absolutely not masonic as there's nothing there to indicate masonry. The retort and microscope together make me think of the field of medicine contextually. I'd have a university science research historian look at it if it's crucial to place it. Fine looking little medallion.

Pendant for an org in some school..

Maybe

Chemistry and biological mastership
involving the masons (the X sign is very clear)
hard to see it if you dont know how to look

there is probably a hidden room in a old familly house
and this pendant could be the key to this room (just a theory)

good luck in your researchs
thanks for sharing

Hi,
It's a nice find!

I haven't a clue, but if this is to scale- maybe more pieces close-by?

I too got the feeling that it somehow has to do with science and/or alchemy.??



eta; the 3rd from bottom bracelet?

There is nothing Masonic about the pendant which shows you do not know how to look.

Ok...you got me thinking....are you saying the microscope and the other object ( that pipe looking thing) are crossed so there- fore a masonic sign ?

Sir AugustusMasonicus ! nice to speak to you again

i knew i would see you at some point

not a coincidence that you are here today speaking to me now !

lets go to the more important part here (this pendant)
the X between both objects make the mason sign if you look carefully
and you know how these secret society works :



if i dont know how to look .. then please .. Enlight me on my mistakes ?
and proove me wrong

2012 is the Age of Enlightment

its time people share the truth and start caring for each other

An 'X' is not Masonic and does not factor into Masonic ritual or symbolism.
