This bookmark is one of the most beautiful and special ones I have in my collection. I would love to know more about its story, about its age or, even, about the cross' decorations. The only information I have is that this bookmark belonged to a Swedish woman who was living in Spain. I think it is a beautiful treasure ♥. 

The name Gällivare is engraved on the reverse and, searching on the net, I found this is a town in the very north of Sweden, just about 100 km of the Arctic Circle. This town is the home of a devotional Lutheran community, The Laestadianism, founded in the XIX century by a noted pastor and afterwards extended to many countries.
