A beautifully detailed, very striking pentacle pendant made from the finest high quality Nickel-free pewter. It comes ready to wear on an adjustable cord (approx 14" to 30" long) The pendant is 28mm/1" diameter. The pentacle is based upon the pentagram - a five-pointed star within a circle and is the most common Pagan symbol.
It is typically used to identify yourself as a Pagan or Wiccan. The five points represent the 4 elements of matter (earth, air, fire and water) plus the quintessential fifth element - spirit. As a Pentacle, the circle connects the five elements but is also symbolic of containment and protection and with the single point upwards, signifies the spirit ruling matter (i.e. mind ruling limbs) and is a symbol of rightness.
This design, known as a Runic Pentacle, has the Runic alphabet, the Furthark, inscribed along the circle. The Furthark is a 2000+ year old Nordic alphabet containing mystery and wisdom in each letter. With such magical properties encircling the pentacle a powerful defence is created. A lovely, powerful and symbolic piece of jewellery, you'll be proud of this item - we're certain of that. A perfect gift - or a treat for yourself!
