The pendant measures 1.75" ( 44mm) long (with the bail) by 0.625" (16mm) in diameter. The cylinder is hollow, meant to hold a printed mantra scroll which is missing. This prayer wheel was hand made, probably in Nepal. The grade of silver is unknown. This Tibetan Silver Prayer Wheel Pendant is in Very Good condition and appears never to have been used.
