Derived from the Sanskrit word "upala" (meaning "valuable stone"), this stone consists of both colloidal silica and up to 20% water – bringing the fortitude of earth with the unfathomable mystery of water. It is considered to be the crystal of the New Age, and has been beloved by alchemists and mystics throughout the centuries for its reputed ability to facilitate connection to the higher self and to the wisdom of the Ancients. Sterling Opal specifically is thought to uplift the aura, illuminating ones best traits and supporting the offering of these gifts to the world.
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).
Every pinecone pendant is an elegant gift from Mother Nature -- unveiling the ornate Sacred Geometry hidden at the center of one of the world's densest Pinecones. Because only one cross-section is taken from the "heart" of each Cone, every pendant is absolutely unique, and truly one-of-a-kind.
This uniquely hand-crafted pinecone pendant is the exact one you will receive.
