Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) - Pendulum #1
This pendant contains one small sprig of Valerian (Valeriana officinalis), a dreamy, sweet smelling summer herb, traditionally used both as component of perfume for it's sweet, floral scent, as well as a powerful sleep aid in traditional western herbalism. The herb has been dried thoroughly and preserved in a pane of crystal clear resin.
In both modern and traditional contexts, it is a plant associated with witches and magic.
The pendulum measures approximately 1 1/8" (29mm) long by 7/16" (11.3mm) wide and comes on a 7" (178mm) chain. It will come with a tiny card stamped and typed by hand on an old typewriter stating the species embedded inside and will come wrapped in a manner similar to the last photo in this listing.
Note that this is not meant to be worn as it does not come on a chain long enough to be worn. This is a pendulum, a basic divination tool in a wide variety of occult practices. If you would like this piece instead on a wearable chain, please include a note stating so in the "note to seller" section of your purchase.
