Abstract

A medieval Russian bronze pendant icon with enamel images, dated to the period from the 12th to the first half of the 13th century was studied. The investigation was performed using neutron and synchrotron tomography, X-ray fluorescence analysis, and neutron and synchrotron X-ray diffraction analysis. The product was found to have no strips dividing enamels of different colors, whereas strip fragments were revealed deep in the enamel layer. The pendant fabrication technology has been reconstructed.
