Silvered bronze. Circular, 22.3mm, 7/8” diameter pierced with a cross potent, i.e. with "crutches" at the beam ends. Five crosses in one, representing the five wounds of Christ. That form is also known as the Crusader's cross, having been an element in the arms of Godfrey Bouillon which he wore during the First Crusade. He was a Frankish knight, known as Baron of the Holy Sepulcher and the Crusader King, ruler of the Kingdom of Jerusalem following its victorious siege in 1099.  For that reason, it is also known as the Jerusalem Cross. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Actual pendant worn by a Crusader 900 years ago!
