This large moon pendant is carved from a piece of natural scenic dendritic agate.
Scenic dendritic agate is known as "the Stone of Plentitude." It derives its name from the Greek for tree because of the plant-shaped occlusions often found in it. It is often associated with composure and the earth. In ancient times, it was believed to aid pregnancies' and to give emotional buoyancy to women after childbirth.
This large pendant is bound in silver-plated copper on a black cord. The agate moon alone measures 54x18x6mm.
