  43. An elongated oval citrine lies at the top of this pendant, from it, dangles an amethyst heart, facetted on both sides, between them a small diamond, about the size of a wren's eye. The citrine is perhaps as long as a watermelon seed, but not quite as wide and the amethyst is the width of a large man's thumb. On the centre facet of one side of the heart, is a sleeping wolf, tail covering its nose, ears listening for danger. It is formed from the purest gold and chased in places with silver, to mimic the colour change of the pelts of live wolves. The whole of the pendant is attached to a delicate chain of slightly flattened links, light is meant to play off the tiny flat polished surfaces of each link.
