Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima) - Pendulum #1
This pendulum contains one small sprig of Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima), dried and preserved permanently in a glass-like point of resin.
Sweet Alyssum - from the Greek word alyssum, meaning “without madness” - was once believed to have the capacity to cure rabidness and soothe feral animals, owing to it’s association with gentleness and calmness of spirit. In occult contexts it is said to ward off glamours and hexes, and in the language of flowers, the flower represents “worth beyond beauty”.
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.
