This amber horn pendant is made of a lusciously warm and semi translucent amber. Revered like a gemstone for it takes an incredible polish, amber isn’t a stone at all. It is a fossilized tree resin, from ancient evergreen trees that has been prized since Neolithic times. Ranging in age from 100,000 to 320million years old, it may include small plant and animal material, poetically trapped like in a sticky drop of honey. Because of its age, amber is associated with wisdom, a combination of protection and courage, and is believed to bring a balance of emotions to our hearts.
This amber horn combines two incredibly grounding and ancient ideas. Images of the horn draw from history gives us a picture of our humble beginnings, our earliest wonder, while amber pushes our imagination even further back into pre-history, deep time. We emerge humbled, with a restored sense of what it means to walk this earth. Hand engraved flowers adorn the 18K gold cap on this amber horn which measures 1.5 inches long and 1/2 inch at its widest point and is strung on a recycled 18K gold chain with a lobster clasp.
