Garnet and Gold Treasure Found by Metal Detector

31-year-old Paul Devenyi used a metal detector to find a treasure recently in Leicestershire when the hobbyist unearthed a beautiful gold and garnet pendant.

Experts believe the gem to be around 1,500 years old and one of the finest examples of Ango-Saxon jewelry found. The shield-shaped piece is a little over 2cm long. It was discovered by Devenyi near Hinckley in Leicestershire.
