Pendant Civil War Black Onyx Tintype Photo Mourning Necklace

Antique Civil War era Black Onyx Mourning Pendant.
It is decorated with gold filled over brass leaf sprigs that are attached through holes drilled in the onyx.
The leaf design is prong set with three genuine pearls. One has some damage with some layers peeling.
On the back it has an inset oval with a tintype photo of a man under glass in a brass rim frame. The brass is bent and weak. It needs to be adjusted or it will fall out and the photo could be lost. The glass has a chipped side. Might need to be glued. 
The bail is watch pin style and this may have been worn on a bar pin instead of a chain.
The oynx has been tested with a gem tester. It has some chipping on the bottom points.
Measures 1 3/4" by 1 1/4" without the bail and 2 1/4" long with it.
It has not been cleaned or polished to preserve the original patina.
It weighs 30.4 grams.
