It contain a “secret” – a three-edged damask blade bearing the engraving “Omnia revertutur”, Latin for Everything returns. The top of the mace is adorned with golden ornamental medallions and crowned with an enameled and gemmed golden wreath. The mace is fitted with a total of 64 emeralds and garnets, mounted in gold. The blade can be extracted from the mace by means of a button decorated with a Yakut emerald. The mace is kept in a mahogany carved coffer.
