The weight-stone for "Spindle of Wisdom" is a delightful sterling silver "spindle", a shape similar to spinning toy "top". It's suspended on a detachable sterling silver chain accented with sterling silver beads and your choice of five different types of gemstones, Amazonite, Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, or Rhodochrosite (click on option box to make your selection). This is a light-weight pendulum; the sterling silver spindle is sturdy, though hollow inside and weighs approximately 5 grams.
The fob (also called the holding piece) is a sterling silver triskelle, highly polished on both sides. The Triskelle, or triple spiral, represents vibrational movement, personal growth, spiritual expansion and creativity. The Triskelle is also a symbol for the triads of mind-body-spirit, maiden-mother-crone, and past-present-future.
Included with this pendulum - Drawstring pouch, giftbox, small reusable polishing cloth, pendulum use and care instructions.
Measurements - Overall length of pendulum is 6 1/2". The chain length (including lobster claw clasp) is 4 1/2". Weight-stone measures 1 1/8". All measurements are close approximates.
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 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.)
