ABOUT THE ITEM: -This beautiful handmade pendant features a hand-sculpted Mjolnir designed and inspired from actual excavated Nordic Artifacts. The hammer is accented a teardrop style blue labradorite. The piece was finished with an earthy patina to give it the look of being freshly dug from the earth. A beautiful token to a living memory of a relic almost forgotten. This pendant was handmade using pure copper for the setting and then electroformed to create a bezel for the crystals. The pendant is then coated with a patina and with a special sealing wax. Electroforming is an organic process that creates a coat of copper on items using an electric current. The process can last from anywhere between 24-36 hours. Because of it's organic nature, each piece created in this process is unique and has beautiful imperfections and textures. Along with the protection from the wax, you should not shower or submerge the jewelry in water. Because your jewelry is made of copper, it will age over time but can become shiny again with a nice polish. :) All of the pieces offered at The Mountain Druidess are made with intention and feature fully charged crystals. To recharge your jewelry use the sun's and moon's rays because they are very energizing, as well as energetically clearing. You can use this method to both clear and charge your crystals at the same time. Find a safe place and leave your crystal for 24 hours or more (up to a week) in sunlight and/or moonlight. CRYSTAL/Animal Meaning MEANINGS: -Labradorite- For self-discovery, it is excellent for awakening one's own awareness of inner spirit, intuition and psychic abilities. Labradorite is also the most powerful protector of the mineral kingdom, creating a shielding force throughout the aura and strengthening natural energies from within.
