Celtic Cross Pendant, #13541

13541Materials:  Deer Antler with Amethyst

Price:  $115

Notes:  While the celtic cross shares in the symbolism of the Christian religion, its origins are older and its meanings transcend these borders. Originally a symbol of the crossroads, it was associated with the Greek gods Hermes the traveler and Hecate the wisewoman. It then represented meetings, chance, change, and divine intervention. It also symbolized the world axis, the link between heaven and earth, with human activity radiating outward from this vertical axis along the horizontal arms. This cross is a copy of one carved in stone at Clonmacnois.  Please note, this is a particularly thin, and therefore delicate, carving, not suitable for someone rough on their jewelry.
