Lead alloy, 7/8” (0.96”) height. A circular disk with eight point radial matrix one side and five pellet cluster surrounding one, representing the five wound of Christ. Integral cross shape top for suspension. These were produced in the Holy Land for pilgrims who wore them at home as prestige symbols. They were sold at shrines of saints where holy relics of the saints, sometimes, the whole corpus were preserved. The symbols are specific to the life and achievements of the saint. Pilgrims wore them strung as necklaces, on hats or attached to the clothing. Bent with the surface encrusted from burial.
