Uighar, Carnelian and Silver Ring

A deep red Carnelian (Red agate), flat oval set in a solid looking, embossed ring, with borders of “claws” and stylized animals, against a dark oxidized background. (I think it’s possibly from Kasghar, on the Silk Route, in far Western China, near Khirgiztan, but could also be from Iran/Pakistan.)
The actual ring has a circular aperture, truncated by the flat back of the stone, hard to size accurately.
It fits a medium, fleshy finger, a little more than a size “N” (US 17) knuckle, but there is room for more flesh possibly up to “P” (US 18.)
A tiny chip on the edge of the stone, doesn’t detract from it’s general appeal. Could easily be worn by either gender, the contrast of the polished silver/oxide is very impressive either way.

Size: Oval Stone L 16 mm (0.6 ins.) x W 13 mm (0.5 ins.) Silver W 25 mm. (1 ins.)

Age: Late 20 th Century.

Weight: 17 grams.
