Elephant Mother and Baby Pendant Hand-Carved from Natural Obsidian
A mother elephant cradles her baby with her trunk in this lovely pendant hand-carved from natural obsidian stone.
Obsidian is a stone formed when molten lava cools so fast that it does not have time to form a crystalline structure. Because of this formation, obsidian can split with very sharp edges and was used millennia ago to make knives.
This pendant combines the symbolism of an elephant, a parent-child relationship, and obsidian. Historically the elephant has been revered by African and Indian cultures for its loyalty, intelligence, strength, longevity, and cooperative spirit. The mother figure brings in love and fierce protectiveness. Obsidian has been said to provide protection from negativity and to help cut ties when you want to leave relationships behind you.
