Cinquefoil (Potentilla reptans) - Medium #1
This pendant contains one small sprig of Cinquefoil (Potentilla reptans) dried thoroughly and preserved in a clear point of glass-like resin. A medicinal herb native to the British Isles, Cinquefoil, with it's distinctive five petal flowers, are a common motif of British heraldry, church architecture, etc. The flower is considered a symbol of nobility and strength. It is also representative of the pentagram, making it a symbolically significant herb to some modern practitioners of Wicca and witchcraft.
The pendant measures about 59mm by 10mm or 2 5/16" by 3/8", and all metal used is hypoallergenic stainless steel.
The specimen has been dried thoroughly and coated in a UV resistant finish prior to being embedded in epoxy resin. The cap and findings are made of sturdy stainless steel.
This pendant is one of a kind and will be wrapped in a manner similar to the last photo in the listing and come with a small tag stating the name of the species, stamped by hand and typed on a vintage typewriter.
Please let me know at checkout if you have a necklace length preference! Otherwise I will include an 18" chain by default.
