This well-known group of vessels and ornaments made of precious metals and stones was discovered by chance in the modern city of Quetta. The gold pendants shaped like cattle, gold cups decorated with lions and other figures in relief, gold necklaces and carnelian and chalcedony pendants rimmed with gold are beautifully crafted. These objects, all reportedly found in tombs, are excellent examples of the combination of cultural influences from Balochistan, northern Iran and Turkmenistan that began during the period following the decline of the Indus Civilization.
