"Journey of the Nautilus
" has a smooth tapered point of swirly green and blue Chrysocolla
in Lapis Lazuli
with a polished sterling silver dome cap. In the detachable sterling silver chain are smooth round beads of Lapis Lazuli and green Turquoise
The sterling silver fob (holding piece) is a lovely, pierced, flat, sterling silver Nautilus shell that's highly polished on both sides.
The Nautilus is a powerful symbol of growth, change, discovery, innovation, renewal, continuity, and connectedness. An expression of nature's perfection, the ancient Nautilus is a tropical sea creature that lives in a multi-chambered, spiral shell. It is an example of a "logarithmic spiral" or "growth spiral" - a curve that can be defined by a mathematical logarithm. Throughout life, as the Nautilus grows, it creates new, wider, larger chambers to dwell in, each one perfectly proportioned. A lifeline connects its first chamber to its last. Rooms that have been outgrown are left behind - but never forgotten.
Included with this pendulum - Drawstring pouch, giftbox, small reusable polishing cloth, pendulum use and care instructions.
Measurements - Overall length of pendulum is 6 1/4". The chain length (including the sterling lobster claw clasp) is 4 1/3". Weight-stone (including mounting and top loop) measures 1 1/8". All measurements are close approximations.
All metal parts (chain, clasp, fob, mountings, and connectors) are sterling silver. All stones are genuine. Please note: As these are natural stones, there will be variations in color intensity and patterns.
How to wear this pendulum- This pendulum's chain has a clasp that allows you to detach the weight-stone so you can wear it as a pendant - simply by slipping it onto your own neck chain or satin cord. Or you can wear the whole pendulum by using a pendulum-to-pendant adapter, or simply by threading a neck chain or cord through one of the links in the pendulum's chain and letting both ends dangle. (Adapter and neck chain sold separately - see related items below.)
