Here's a recent find of mine from a job lot of 'costume jewellery'. I suspect it's a 19th century pendant that has been mounted in white gold and exported to the west as a brooch.

It's 2 inches in length, weighs 15 grams, and has a baby dragon/ 'chilong' climbing up the side.

The colours in the photos are how it looks in real life...

I will be sending it off to a local gem laboratory to get tested for treatments asap.

The luster looks lovely! I see some brown inclusions that would seem to indicate it was not bleached. Hope you get positive news! And fwiw I think the brooch setting is very pretty too, maybe slip a cord through the top carved loop and you can wear it both ways.
