Hand-mined and polished Scottish Lewisian set in 925 sterling silver. Comes beautifully presented in a Two Skies presentation box, complete with matching 18" 925 sterling silver link chain & colourful 'Lewisian' story card. Pendant measures roughly 21x12x5mm, including bail.
This listing is for one (1) pendant. We have several of these pendants, all so similar that we felt the photos represented all fairly - therefore you may not receive the actual pendant in the photographs, but one very similar, of no less quality or size than the one pictured. The Lewisian in each pendant is of a similar shade of red, although it will display its own unique subtle characteristics.
At Two Skies, we think that "To own a piece of Scottish Lewisian is to own a piece of Scotland itself. By purchasing this beautiful piece you are connected not just to Scotland but to its age old traditions and folklore."
Lewisian Sterling Silver Celtic Pendant
Lewisian comes from the Isles of Lewis, Harris and North Highlands. It is collected from the ancient bedrock of Scotland and is one of the oldest rocks in the world, up to 3 billion years old (3,000,000,000 years!). It is a unique composition of many minerals including Feldspar, Epidote and Quartz, all of which are part of the "Lewisian Gneiss" complex. Lewisian has been treasured for thousands of years by the clans of Scotland. It was used by the Megalithic cultures to construct monuments such as the Callanish stone circle on the Isle of Lewis
