This item is a brand new retail packaged, well crafted and beautifully detailed pendant created from the finest high-quality Nickel-free pewter and featuring a dark blue acrylic stone. It comes ready to wear on an adjustable cord (approx 14" to 30" long) although it would look fine on your own favourite chain. The pendant is 54mm high (including loop) and just 16mm wide. We believe this pendant is symbolic of an early staff of Mercury, or Hermes if you prefer the Greek god, and is similar to the Caduceus healing symbol. However, this item features two serpents entwined around a staff with a dark blue stone at the hilt and a small pentagram at the top. The pentagram doesn't appear on any image we can find of either Mercury or Hermes, so making this item more specific to pagan or Wiccan culture. Whatever its true symbolism is, we think this is a powerful and beautiful pendant. You'll be proud of this item - we're certain of that. the ideal present or a treat for yourself!
