Bastian Brothers Pendant
This is a Bastian Brothers pendant. The rock portion is quite large, measuring 40mm wide by 50mm tall, and is pear-shaped facing downward. The chain is gold tone and has two textured half-moon shaped beads near the pendant top, a lobster style clasp, a tiny tigers eye bead and a round disc shaped hang-tag signed BB (one of the letter Bs is facing backward). The back side is open to allow light pass through and the textured edge creates their signature frame-effect. This is a nice piece with significant weight. My best guess on the stone is granite, but it is untested.
Knowing the company history, this pendant is likely a ceremony or commemorative pendant, probably one of only a few made, and likely came from a larger structure, mountain, or other place of significance where military, police, or fire personnel responded.
Made in America, Union-made. Signed BB on the hang-tag; Chain measures 18" with 2" extension
