- "The Tower", number 16 in the Tarot Major Arcana, is one of 22 designs in AYP's "Tarot Truth" limited edition series. This pendulum is designed to mirror the bold, earth-shaking, epiphonic energies of the of the Tarot’s climatic plot twister “The Tower”, as it allows us to embrace, instead of fear the thing we know is inevitable - change.
The weight-stone is an orb "stack" of highly polished, metallic-looking Hematite, (orb is stacked between smaller Hematite stones, with sterling silver spacers and mounts that create a gentle point at the top and the bottom). It suspends from a detachable sterling silver chain with a powerhouse of mineral energies of Moldavite, Tourmalated Quartz, and Hematite. If you wear a pacemaker, please check with your doctor before wearing or working with Hematite.
The fob (the holding piece) in this pendulum is thick oval shaped slab of solid sterling silver that features a raised lightning bolt, a symbol of divine power and bold, energetic action. For measurements and other details, click the "Details" tab above.
The Lightning Bolt is a symbol of divine power and bold, energetic action.
The Tarot Truth Limited Edition series is limited to 500 of each design.
Measurements - The overall length of pendulum is 6 7/8". The chain length (including the lobster claw clasp) is 4 1/2". Weight-stone, including its sterling silver mounting, measures 1 1/2" high x 1/2" wide. Measurements are approximate.
All stones are genuine. Chain, clasp, and connectors are sterling silver. Please note: As these are natural stones, depth of color, and patterns in each stone may vary.
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.
