Snakeroot (Ageratina altissima) - Pendulum #2
This pendulum contains one small sprig of Snakeroot (Ageratina altissima), dried and preserved permanently in a glass-like point of resin.
Snakeroot is a North American native herb and a deadly poisonous one at that. It is the plant responsible for the rash of "disease" known as "milk sickness" that plagued early settlers in the 19th century of America.
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.
