I found this with many other items on Historical Property that was a slave plantation owned by Superior Court Justice and the Ambassador to Peru who owned many mines all over the world... I have other things but I was starting with this one... The item has gold balls no larger than BB's in parts and a gold luster along with silvery metal.. I see a face in the other side .. many faces... I will get a pic soon... I found many carved rock faces and snakes... A man with one eye wounded is common and snakes... more to come.

Ok .. I found something on Historical property that was a slave plantation owned by Superior court Justice and the ambassador to Peru... I found many carved pieces also but want to start with this one... I have another like this but not identical... Both contain gold... If you look closely you will see gold balls the size of BB's and smaller along with the silvery luster it also has gold luster in many places... Any ideas...I see a face and snakes or reptiles in her hair.
I seen there was one reply but I can't find it so maybe it was taken down.... I want to mention that it is completely nonmagnetic unless its paramagnetic ... but with the strongest magnate possible it has no magnetic field.. I also have one that resembles it I found in the same area with conglomerate and carved rocks and other items. I'm going to post a pic of it also... any ideas yet. Ore used in some way they made into a face.... meteorite manipulated? This first looks like a woman to me and this next a man .

After all the know it alls said their 2 cents on everything else
.. To this day not even a guess as too what this may be...I guess its best not to open your mouth and be known as a fool . Someone please guess for ideas... Gemologist have no clue.. The Smithsonian is interested but know not enough to guess. What about you.. Its two. One male and one female and these are tributes or idols to deities. Thats my guess!

OK:
You've absconded with a number of unknowns from an alleged " historical property".
Bravo.
This is a gemological forum.
Do you see any gems there? I don't.

At best, this may be of anthropological interest.
Perhaps you should consider bringing your box of contraband to the anthropology department of the closest college or uni and ask for their assistance in helping you sort it out.

Good luck.
You can go away now.
