A few years ago in Lebanon, Pa it was discovered that two bodies were buried standing up in this mans yard. Eventually he was cleared of killing them and they were found to be two Roma's, a mother and a child. They were placed into the dirt feet first. These were Gypsies and these types, the ultra blessed with Supernatural power are buried feet first. This was a mother and her child who was a prostitute.
Originally Gypsies came from India over a thousand years ago and with them sacred power. As of now there are only about 12 million of them left world wide, this is why they encourage the children to marry with in the community.
The piece you are looking at was buried with them and is a item of psychic ability which they call a eye bomb. This means it opens up all areas to induce all kinds of psychic ability. This also opens up all areas of wealth both supernatural and in the physical. This was buried because it was thought when they come back they could continue to use this magical vessel.
I have no idea what this is made of but it does look like semi precious gemstones and could be sterling but I'm not sure.
