Small Antique Victorian Cameo Pin

This is a small antique Victorian cameo brooch. It was made to look like a 
lava cameo, but it is made of an early type of plastic or rubber. I am unsure 
of the exact material, as I have never run across it before. The color is a dusty 
rose pink and the profile is done in a very high relief. The setting is a dark gold 
brassy tone. There is a simple C clasp with a tube type hinge. The pin stem 
extends past the actual brooch. Very old piece. The pin is C1860.

1" by 3/4"

---The setting shows some wear. 
---Someone has scraped a small section of the back of the cameo. 
(I presume to test the material.)
