Technical Observations: The patina is black and green with reddish-brown areas. Under ultraviolet light, several areas that seem to correspond to waxy accretions fluoresced a translucent white. There is some small porosity or pitting.
The bracelet is solid and made in one piece that was likely cast in the present shape rather than bent into shape from a metal rod. It is thinner at the extremities and flat at the terminals; one terminal is smooth, the other slightly uneven. There is no evidence of tool marks.
