Protective Hand of Fatima - Hematite and Sterling Silver Pendulum
Included with this pendulum: Drawstring pouch, giftbox with embossed AYP logo, gemstone energy information, pendulum care and energy cleansing instructions, reusable polishing cloth, and a "How to use a pendulum" bookmark
The "Protective Hand of Fatima" utilizes an ancient symbol of protection (also known as the "Hamsa Hand"). A beautiful smooth pointed drop of shiny (and heavy) Hematite suspends on a detachable sterling silver chain with three little silver clad stacks of Hematite.
The fob (holding piece) is a beautifully cast, wonderfully intricate, filigreed "Hand of Fatima" in sterling silver. For measurements and other details, click the "Details" tab above.
An ancient symbol, the "Hand of Fatima"crosses over several religious and cultural boundaries. Over many centuries, it has become a known universal symbol of protection. It protects against the "evil eye", a term that represents a broad range of negativity - including our own internal fears. This symbol is also known as the Hamsa Hand, Hand of Miriam, and Hand of Mary.
Measurements - Overall length of pendulum is 7 1/2". The chain length (including clasp) is 5 1/3". Weight-stone measures 1 1/8". All measurements are approximate.
The length of this pendulum is designed for optimal swing and wearability, however, if you prefer, you can order with a longer chain - up to 4 additional inches (see "Chain Length" option box). Additional length adds extra sterling links to the chain, but the number of beads is unchanged.
All metal parts (chain, clasp, fob, mountings, and connectors) are sterling silver. All stones are genuine. Please note: As these are natural stones, depth of color, size, and patterns in each stone may vary slightly.
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.)
Sterling Silver - This pendulum is made with sterling silver and contains no base metal parts. Sterling silver is a beautiful and durable alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metal, usually copper. Pendulums made with sterling silver are more sensitive to subtle energy vibrations than those that are constructed with base metals (alloys that use nickle, zinc, lead, and/or tin).
Caring for your sterling silver - If worn or used much, sterling will eventually oxidize and develop a lovely patina - a nice warm glow accentuated by darkened (tarnished) areas. You can either leave it this way, or if you prefer a bright and shiny surface, gently polish with a treated cloth to remove the oxidation. Never use abrasive cleansers or expose to salts. Store in a cool dry place.
