Talisman for SELF-ACCEPTANCE and COMPASSION.
The Leland Blue stone is made of slag, a waste product of smelting in which raw ore is heated and the desired iron ore is collected from various impurities. When the impurities cool this material is formed. I see it as similar to our human selves. Our desired and most attractive qualities are kept and the “impurities” or undesired parts of ourselves, divine and unique, are cast aside. I believe we need those parts, they are important and they matter, now more than ever. The Leland Blue side product was collected, cut, and polished reminding us to collect, honor, and care for our "impurities" as well. The rectangle piece is set in precious metal to give it the reverence it deserves, reminding you to give yourself the same respect. My sincerest hope is that this piece brings you more self-acceptance and compassion to all the parts that are YOU!
The square Leland Blue piece measures 0.75" x 0.75". It is set in oxidized sterling silver and backed with reclaimed Edgeworth tobacco tin. An extra treat for you, the wearer. It hangs on a 20-inch oxidized sterling silver chain.
