It isn't until Crono's party travels to 12,000 B.C. when they find out that the pendant is actually from that era. It was made from the prehistoric red rock and once belonged to Queen Zeal's daughter, Schala. They found out that the pendant could be powered up by the Mammon Machine. They do that in order to reach the Queen's chambers in Zeal Palace.
