25,000-year-old stone pendant unearthed

A stone pendant has been unearthed in Spain’s Basque region which dates back 25,000 years.

Alvaro Arrizabalaga, excavation director said the 10cm pendant is very well preserved and will be removed to a public museum from the dig, located 20 km from San Sebastian near the border with France.

Arrizabalaga says the stone was hung from a cord around a person’s neck, while it was also used as a tool to retouch the edges of tools made from flint.
