One of the largest & best Victorian crosses I’ve had in the shop. It measures over 4” inches long, is made from Vulcanite, & features a beautiful rose motif. Is it a mourning jewel? Maybe: Just because a piece of Victorian clothing or jewelry is black does NOT mean it was worn during mourning. Then, as now, people wore cross shaped jewelry & the color black all the time. That said, vulcanite was also a popular material for mourning jewelry as it offered a less expensive alternative to carved jet. It would be suitable for a later stage of mourning. 

Condition is excellent with just a very small, hairline crack on the side of the horizontal part of the cross, as shown.
