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. It is 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. This waste product was collected, cut, and polished reminding us to collect, honor, and care for our "impurities" as well. The oval 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 lovely parts that are YOU!
The pendant and chain are oxidized sterling silver. The chain is 31 inches. The pendant measures 1.75 inches long and 1.5 inches wide and is backed with reclaimed Edgewood tobacco tin. An extra little treat for you, the wearer.
