Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) - Pendulum #1
$25.00 Sold Out
This pendulum contains one small sprig of Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus), dried and preserved permanently in a glass-like point of resin.
Cornflower, named for the tendency of the plant to occupy pastoral lands in it's native range, is considered to have some of the most vividly blue flowers in existence - a rarity in and of itself in the botanical world. For this reason, Cornflowers have historically been used as a rich blue pigment, and in modern usage, "cornflower blue" is still a widely used name for it's particular hue. The flower is also the national flower of Estonia.
The pendulum measures approximately 1 1/4" (31mm) long by 1" (24mm) wide and comes on a 6" (152mm) 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.
