This Victorian locket features an oval rock crystal split in two with base metal fittings. When photos (or any flat mementos) are placed inside the locket, the quartz lenses create a subtle magnification and fish eye effect. With nothing inside, hold the locket in front of any image or text and you will see it flipped upside down.
