RARE COPPER VIKING RING, 900-1050 AD, SIZE 4 1/2
3.0mm width with rounded face. The inside with evidence of being made with a central core to distribute the metal and heat for the best quality and detail. The core was then laboriously removed by hand and inside polished, but in this case, it left a remnant band within. Vikings were expert metallurgists. The use of pure copper is rare and suggests a supernatural significance as alloys were much more durable. See the reference image which shows the process. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
