SOLD. THANK YOU
|A clear (though photograph looks dark) and unblemished rock crystal orb is wrapped in a hammock of substantial silver bands which have been hand decorated with a wheat pattern. Engraved flowers are at top and bottom poles. This is a tactile pendant, one that gives pleasure to the senses when touched. Rock crystal has been prized since antiquity for bringing the wearer its prophylactic qualities. This would have been worn and handled for protection against ailments of the body. Measurements: 1 2/3 in. including suspension loop. 1 1/8 inches across the front. Circumference is 3 inches. Sold without the chain.|
