Antique Saint Aloysius de Gonzaga Medal
This stunning antique Spanish Saint Aloysius de Gonzaga medal is composed of silver with just a bit of the original gold gilt patina. The luxurious wash of the gilt patina gives off a very special otherworldly glow. St Aloysius is shown as a young man at the alter wearing a cassock. He is surrounded with spiritual attributes including lilies, referring to innocence; a cross, referring to piety and sacrifice; a skull, referring to his early death; and a crown of the marquis, which Aloysius relinquished.
