I've named this design "The Healer" for it's multiple healing energies. The weight-stone is an luscious green Prehnite orb, highly polished and gently translucent, set between graceful, sturdy sterling silver mounts. Dangling from the bottom of the orb is a sweet little sterling silver teardrop. The orb is suspended on a detachable sterling silver chain that's accented with Prehnite, Peridot, Clear Quartz, and at the center of the chain is a lovely, large faceted Moldavite that weighs approximately 1.5 carats.
The fob (the holding piece) is a delightful three dimensional, sterling silver, dangling snake, an animal that is often a totem of healers. Click "Details" tab for more information about snake energy.
This lovely pale green Prehnite weight-stone that looks like fresh-squeezed cucumber juice with bits of fresh mint swirling around in it, is known as the "Healer's Healing Stone". By chance, Prehnite was one of the first stones I used when I started making pendulums years ago. I love this stone now even more, both for it's beauty and for its wonderful energetic qualities. The particular Prehnite orbs I'm using here in "The Healer", are the quite simply the nicest I've ever worked with, or seen for that matter, with beautiful color and a wonderfully lustrous, high-polished surface that shows off what's going on inside the stone.
Please note: As these are natural stones, depth of color, translucence, and patterns in each stone will vary, though the photos here are a good representation of these variables. Quantities on this design are quite limited.
Included with this pendulum - Drawstring pouch, giftbox, small reusable polishing cloth, and pendulum use and care instructions.
Symbolism - The snake is often a healer's totem (or "power animal"). Snakes have a natural ability to balance energies, are protective, and in tune to the loving harmony between the physical and ethereal. Comfortable with both the shadows and the sunlight, snakes are diplomatic, intelligent, and intuitive. They embody the concept of transformation and rebirth by casting off the old self to reveal a newer version, over and over again. Snakes symbolize healing, rebirth, intuition, fertility, immortality, balance, cunning, protection, patience, eternity and infinite renewal.
Measurements - Overall length of pendulum is 8 3/4". The chain length (including the clasp) is 5 5/8". Weight-stone, including its sterling silver mountings and dangling teardrop, measures 1 3/4" tall x 5/8" wide. All measurements are close approximates.
All metal parts (chain, clasp, fob, mountings, and connectors) are sterling silver. All stones are genuine.
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.)
