Brass cross with Jesus figure (complete) encrusted into piece of impacted debris. 33.6 grams, roughly 2-1/2" x 2". In addition to emeralds, this outbound Spanish ship was carrying religious medallions, crucifixes and crosses for converting the natives, and of the last-mentioned this piece is probably the best we've ever seen, completely intact and with intricate design on both sides, the Jesus figure applied on front above a small skull-and-crossbones for Golgotha, with left arm embedded in a thick, rock-like chunk of orange and white, the cross itself a dark brown color all over. With Frank and Daniel Sedwick certificate from 1995. Recovered from: San Geronimo, sunk in 1751 off the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico
