Large Amazigh (Berber) pendants of this type are traditionally worn suspended from large hoop "earrings" on a headpiece.  Mixed metals are a tarnished silvery color.  About 4.5 inches long and about 2.75 inches wide.  There is a short piece of cord attached to this pendant which could have been used to loop this pendant around something in a home or to decorate a personal item. Cord is not long enough to be a necklace.  Lovely and lightweight.  

The Berber people, or Amazigh as they call themselves are an ethnic group of several nations indigenous mostly to North Africa and in some northern parts of Western Africa -  Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania, northern Mali, northern Niger, and a small part of western Egypt.
