There is nothing Masonic about the pendant which shows you do not know how to look.
why, thank you for that condescending response - would you please be so kind and show us how to look? i know you are quite busy in your post to tell us what we do not know how but not enough time to go into more detail so that we little people can get a more clear and precise picture of all that knowledge you purposely withheld - surely you want us to be able to deny ignorance?

I actually have a few of them.

Most likely came from Josten's or Balfour. They were the most used resource back then. They also make class rings.

Here is one similar to it from Josten's from the 50's for "Forensics".

This. It isn't as exciting or mysterious which is probably why it was just glossed over.

My grandfather got this medal for winning the school spelling bee. He was quite good.

A fine heirloom, indeed.

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...(?)

Alchemist pendant, probably used to identify who was an alchemist. Alchemy was the progenitor of modern chemistry, they used all sorts of gadgets, and beakers and tubules were generally a part of their aparatus. Dunno if they had microscopes though, my takeon it anyway.

Now if I had to Guess Myself I'd say it's an Important Medallion. Not just because of it's sentimental value, which in my Opinion, should Be far more Important than what it once meant, but I'd say it is something Alchemical. Perhaps, even something to do with Galileo. What I would recommend would be to Sleep, Pray, or Meditate on it. Whatever your preferred method of Reflection may be.

It appears to be and academic award for science or chemistry. They gave those medals out in high schools back in the 40's and 50's. My Dad had several for sports and they were very similar.

These symbols have been used in science awards for science fairs and such for a long time. They are still in use. Go to this site and scroll down a little and you will see one that is very similar to yours. They used to be given to high school/college graduates who have excelled in science.

Now they ususally just give certificates or books. Way back when the schools would have more funds or even people who would provide donations so that these types of awards could be given.

It's fairly obvious you lack severe knowledge in geometry, no offense of course..
For your convenience, here is an image that will explain simply enough the very basics of the three dimensions:


As you can gather, a 1D cross (X) it is not only a geometry impossibility but also a logic fallacy. To draw an X, any X, you need at least two dimensions and I really hope I don't need to explain why.

An X cannot exist in 1D. Even if it's imperfect or extremely skewed:

Masonic ritual and symbolism has been published publically for over 300 years. If you took so time to look it up you would see that my statement is correct.

Ding ding ding..bye George I think you got it!!!! Now if I could find who it belonged to....my parents didn't finish school or go to college...and as I said...I have nooo idea about they're families or history ...so this little mystery of who it could possibly belong too might just be that, a mystery....

Again Thankyou...!!!

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

Yep, here on ATS, any unknown symbol is masonic. (sarcasm)


LoL@ you....although I appreciate and starred your comment...I gotta say...it could have been !!! LoL

First I should say I agree w/ you! Ok (?) .....just wondering....I went to that page and my pendant resembles exactly what you showed me...exactly...so I agree w/ school. But..all those pendants had science written on them or whatever pendant the awardeeee might have been given. Mine has no science across it....so what ? Right? Some may have just assumed people would know that? Or whatever...lol

Right?

i might have made a mistake with the 1D 2D thing .. yes i can agree on that
but you know what i was meaning in the first place
explaining how its possible to hide symbols within a 3D structure

maybe my label was wrong with the pointy details
but the technique exist
