This delicate Blue Morpho butterfly wing has been set in sterling silver, and inlaid into the center of one of our finest Pinecones.
Each wing comes from a sustainable Peruvian butterfly farm -- helping to protect local rainforests from widespread cutting and burning by providing alternative livelihood for local indigenous peoples.
The Butterfly is symbolic of personal transformation and evolution -- transitioning from our current state towards our future dreams and highest purpose, just as the caterpillar metamorphosizes into a beautiful butterfly.
This Pinecone has been blessed with the Seed of Life, cast in Sterling Silver. This sacred symbol serves as the foundation or "Seed" for the Flower of Life, and represents the Seven days of Creation. It depicts the origins of all matter, in geometric perfection, with six circles (the six days of work) resting inside a seventh circle (the day of rest, the sabbath).
The Crushed Crystal pattern around the outside of this center wing has been carefully mixed with a powerful Phosphorescent powder, then inlaid into the pendant -- so it glows brightly in the dark!
(The Center wing hasn't been altered from its original elegant form, and does not glow)
