Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) - Large #2
This pendant contains one small specimen of Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), dried thoroughly and preserved in a clear prism of glass-like resin.
Wormwood, characterized by it's deeply earthy smell and velvety silver leaves, is perhaps best known as the main ingredient in the hallucinogenic alcoholic beverage "absinthe", aka "The Green Fairy". However, in larger doses, it is also known as a powerful poisonous herb.
The specimen has been pressed dry and coated with a UV resistant finish before being embedded in resin for maximum protection against damage.
The pendant measures around 5.5cm (2 1/4") long by 4.5cm wide (1 3/4"). 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.
