Calendula (Calendula officinalis)
This pendant contains one small specimen of Calendula (Calendula officinalis), dried thoroughly and preserved in a clear point of glass-like resin.
Otherwise known as Old-English Marigold, Pot Marigold or simply Calendula, the sunny and eternally pleasant Marigolds have a tremendously long history of medicinal use, dating back at least to the ancient Greeks. Folk practice has it that Marigold, when placed in the home, will confer protection.
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.
