Woody Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara) - Pendulum #1
This pendulum contains one small sprig of Woody Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara), dried and preserved permanently in a glass-like point of resin.
Bittersweet Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara), otherwise known as Woody Nightshade. As the name "Nightshade" implies this brightly colored member of the tomato family is a common poisonous herb. During the Middle Ages of Europe, the herb was thought to be a strong protection against hexes, and garlands of the plant were often hung on doorways and around the necks of livestock to protect them.
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.
