Silvered bronze. Circular, 23.2mm, 0.92” pierced with a cross potent, i.e. with "crutches" at the beam ends. That form is also known as the Crusader's cross, having been an element in the arms of Godfrey of Bouillon which he wore during the First Crusade. He was made the first King of Jerusalem. For that reason, it is also known as the Jerusalem Cross. Surface textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. An actual pendant worn by a Crusader 900 years ago!
