This is a very pretty piece. I don't know what the stone is but it looks like carnelian. Cameo looks to be a Roman soldier. The opposite side has nice scroll work. Measures 1 1/2" by 1 1/2" which includes the bale holder. Piece is heavy.During the holidays, I will offer next day shipping on receipt of payment. I accept paypal and money orders.
