Hello I am seeking some help on determining what I have found? I am a collector of ww2 military items, at a recent estate sale I purchased a lot of Japanese military pictures in a wood box case with Japanese writing on the interior lid looks like a cigar box). Contained within the contents of pictures and postcards was a hand made small envelope with 5 small gems they are shaped cut and have a pearlesence appearance I believe them to be period with the pictures and case. Any help in identifying their true nature would be greatly appreciated as this is a subject COMPLETELY foreign to me. Thanks in advance!!
