These fibs are very hard to find and very expensive when found.

beautiful Omega fibula. the form is the oldest fibula form found in northafrica

This fibula is 2.5 inches across,  Yes there are fish talisman on this side, the other side there is a hamsa on one side and a leaf, or floral design on the other. This piece is quite heavy.

I like the design on the ends of this, which appears to be the fish talisman.  What is the diameter?
