Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) - Suncatcher Prism #1
$40.00 Sold Out
This pendant contains one small specimen of Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), pressed and preserved in a glass-like prism of clear resin.
Wormwood, characterized by it's deeply earthy smell and velvety silver leaves, is perhaps best known as the main ingredient in the hallucinogenic alcoholic beverage "absinthe", aka "The Green Fairy". However, in larger doses, it is also known as a powerful poisonous herb.
This 5" (127mm) by 1 1/8" (28mm) prism uses a science-grade prism as a model in order to create a strong prism effect. Hang the prism in a sunny window, or place it on a windowsill, and when the light strikes the piece just so, the light will refract and throw dazzling rainbows throughout the room.
This specimen has been dried and coated with a UV resistant finish prior to being encapsulated in resin.
