Red Agate crescent moon pendant hand-wrapped in Copper.
Hailing from the Quartz familiy, Agate is found the world over. As far back as the ancient Babylonians, Agate has been used for talismans, magical amulets, jewelry, decorations, and more. The stone is very strong, so many believe the properties of the stone resonate with the wearer, providing strength and stability. Agate is also known for being a stone of maturity, self-confidence, and warmth. However, Agate is the stone for the Gemini zodiac 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.
