This is a beautiful carnelian shaped halo pendant. A halo is a symbol of holiness, represented by a circle or arc of light around the head of a saint or holy person.
Carnelian belongs to the mineral family quartz. Its history dates back 4,500 years, at which time Ancient Sumerians and Ancient Egyptians fashioned it into body ornaments. The Ancient Greeks and Romans also favored the semi-precious gemstone for intaglios which they used in signet rings.
The design and pattern is from a tutorial from Julie Hulick and wrapped by the owner of this shop, Lacey Buell.
The stone has been wrapped in copper wire. The wire has been oxidized, polished and sealed to give it that antiqued look.
Comes with a complimentary chain.
