@Alegandron and others... Your thoughts on what appears to be a Heart Scarab given its large size and weight (2-3/4 x 2-1/8 inches & nearly 10 oz)? Not 100% sure what it's carved from, but feels like stone(?) It appears to my eye (not that I'm well versed in this field) to be a 19th C. forgery? Thanks in advance for your time!
