In 2010, archeologists found a pendant designed with a row of dots at the Stajnia Cave in southern Poland's Częstochowa Upland region.

This week, researchers announced that the pendant is approximately 41,500 years old, which makes it the oldest decorated piece of jewelry found on the Eurasian continent, the forbes.com article reported.

Researchers used a method known as radiocarbon dating to measure the age of the pendant found at the Stajnia Cave as well as an awl found nearby, which was possibly used to make the decorative pattern in this or similar pendants, according to the Forbes report by Eva Amsen.

The pendant was made of mammoth ivory and the awl from horse bone.

The pendant dates back to the Paleolithic era when modern humans started to settle across Europe, forbes.com reported.
