Quartz Pendulum with a top featuring a pewter pentacle charm, Quartz chips and a Jet bead. Comes with a velveteen pouch.
The Pentacle is a symbol of a star encased in a circle.
Always with 5 points (one pointing upward), each has its own meaning.
The upward point of the star is representative of the spirit. The other
four points all represent an element; earth, air, fire, and water. All
these things contribute to life and are a part of each of us.
The number 5 has always been regarded as mystical and magical, yet
essentially 'human'. We have five fingers/toes on each limb extremity.We
commonly note five senses - sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste. We
perceive five stages or initiations in our lives - eg. birth,
adolescence, coitus, parenthood and death. (There are other numbers /
initiations / stages / attributions).
The number 5 is associated with Mars. It signifies severity, conflict
and harmony through conflict. In Christianity, five were the wounds of
Christ on the cross. There are five pillars of the Muslim faith and five
daily times of prayer.
Five were the virtues of the medieval knight - generosity, courtesy,
chastity, chivalry and piety as symbolized in the pentagram device of
Sir Gawain. The Wiccan Kiss is Fivefold - feet, knees, womb, breasts,
lips - Blessed be.
The number 5 is prime. The simplest star - the pentacle - requires
five lines to draw and it is unicursal; it is a continuous loop.
The pentacle has long been believed to be a potent protection against
evil, a symbol of conflict that shields the wearer and the home. The
pentagram has five spiked wards and a womb shaped defensive, protective
pentagon at the center.
