This handcrafted pendant features an absolutely gorgeous piece of high-grade glittering sunstone, paired with a shimmering Moonstone with a gorgeous blue flash. The pendant setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) bail, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezel settings, and a solid sterling silver trims and accents. It has then been sanded, oxidised and polished to a high shine. The piece hangs from a 72cm adjustable organic cotton cord, so that it can be adjusted from a choker to a long layering necklace, and anything in between! Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece, made by hand, from recycled silver, cruelty-free materials and environmentally-friendly methods!

💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Rich in historical significance, Moonstone was admired by the Romans for over 2000 years, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon.
Legendary as 'The Traveller's Stone,' Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities.
💎 SUNSTONE LORE:
Sunstone is a member of the Feldspar family, and is named for its warm shades of gold, orange, reds and browns that sparkle like the sun. Inclusions of Goethite or Hematite refract light between the different crystal layers and produce an iridescent effect as the stone is viewed from various angles. In ancient Greece, Sunstone represented the sun god, bringing life and abundance to all fortunate enough to possess it. It was used often in the ornamentation of goblets and plates, and was believed to counteract poison and produce strength. Sunstone was also used by the Canadian Indians in rituals of the medicine wheel to show spirit guides the connection with the golden white healing light of the sun. During those ceremonies Sunstone was placed in the centre of the medicine wheel, and it has been reported that during contact with the spirit guides, the stone emitted a golden glow.
Sunstone is considered to be a gem that brings openness, benevolence, warmth, strength, mental clarity, and the willingness and ability to bestow blessings upon others. Known as a joyful stone, Sunstone also inspires the nurturing of self in order to be of service to others. It restores the enjoyment of life, good nature and provides a sense of abundance.
