This gorgeous piece of necklace is perfect for those who like to wear small, delicate jewellery! The hand cast bronze piece is a double tendril pattern from which a tiny picture jasper sphere hangs down. The long shape of the pendant emphasizes the cleavage while it's still a barely prominent, fine jewellery (the pendant is 3 cm = 1.2 inches long).
The pendant hangs on a 41 cm = 16.10 inches long double wire copper cord decorated with 2 sphere beads.
Jaspers have been revered by ancient peoples and civilizations throughout the world as sacred and powerful stones of protection, for both the physical and spiritual realm. They were known as the “rain bringers” and nurturers, healers of the spirit and stones of courage and wisdom. The name can be traced back in Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Assyrian, Greek and Latin, and the virtues of Jaspers have been extolled throughout the ages by the most noted physicians, magicians, poets, scientists, lapidaries and scholars.
Picture Jasper, a remarkable form of Brown Jasper, is characterized by masterful “scenes” and landscape patterns formed by Nature, and is believed to contain hidden messages from the past. It was revered in many cultures of the world for its deep connection to the Earth, its protection during shamanic journeying, and its ability to divine the land and the future. It is perhaps more closely connected to the planet than any other Jasper and is known today as the Stone of Global Awareness.
