This cross is rather similar to 2020.153, but with a green stone and small green beads in the middle of the four chains connecting the arms. Each of the four medal caps at the ends of the arms is decorated with a small ovular frame within which there may originally have been a figure. The cross retains its original hinge at the top, but the suspension piece is now missing.
