labradorite pyramid bullet necklace
Elegant necklace made of recycled 357 magnum bullet casing, which I hand-etched with an intricate flower mandala design. I hand-cut a small round opening on the front of the casing and inserted a polished labradorite point. The top of the point shows through the opening and appears as if there is a pyramid inside. Full pendant measures approximately 2.5 inches in length and is very lightweight. 27-inch long brass chain is decorated with stunning beadwork in brass tones.
Labradorite is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. It was discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770 who named it for the area. Lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms.
A stone of transformation, Labradorite is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance. It balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Excellent for strengthening intuition - promoting psychic abilities. Powerful in revealing the truth behind illusions, Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities, and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe. It stimulates the imagination and calms an overactive mind, developing enthusiasm and new ideas.
