  1. Hello Professor John Miksic! I have reason to believe that a family heirloom I have is molded by Javanese Gold Miners of the Philippines in pre Spanish Colonial centuries. I am filipino and these pendants have been in my family for, at least, 1 century. Before my great grandma, we have no idea the origins. If you can help me, please feel free to contact me via email. I live in NJ! Thank you!
