Black Obsidian Crescent Moon Pendant hand-wrapped in Sterling Silver.
Long used for jewelry, tools, and weapons, Black Obsidian is a powerful stone. Many believe the clarity and reflection the stone provides helps individuals see the truth of things within their life. Some believe it provides stress relief and emotional healing, acting as protection for negative energies. For this reason it is popular among counselors and therapists. While Black Obsidian is not a birthstone, it is the zodiac stone for those born under the Capricorn sign.
In mythology and Tarot, the moon is about personal change, self-evolution, and spiritual growth, as well as intuition and the ebb and flow of life. The moon controls the tides, but it also influences our emotions and moods. It is a powerful celestial orb that can bring great influence in a person's life.
This pendant is approximately 1" in length, with another .50" for the bail, for a total 1.5" in length. The piece has been left bright but can be oxidized for an antique finish. A polishing cloth is included in the jewelry box with the pendant.
