A rounded flat item decorated on the front side with a zigzag ornament. In the center of the disс there is a through-hole.
During the manufacture of the ornament elements, two tools were used: a reamer and a burin. Zigzag is made with a burin, and the surface is polished over it. There is an additional flaring of the edge of the central hole from the front side. On the inner side, drilling was made with a reamer. The lines of indentations on the back are made with a burin. Polishing on the inside is relatively more intensive.
At the edges of the item there are use-wear traces (contact with the skin).
