Old Norse, “seeing one.” Early Viking Bronze Cross 1000 - 1200 CE -
In the early Middle Ages as the Vikings converted to Christianity, their once “pagan” amulets began to evolve in form and meaning, eventually becoming the cross. Long ago, this early cross lost its hanging loop but the openwork design allows the fragment to easily be suspended. It was difficult to resist a bit of cleaning and can now be worn with either the dark or bronzed side outward. The cross is touched by ancient rock crystal beads, dated around 1200 CE, each unique in shape and translucency. Mounted with assorted antique French steel cut beads, the companion stones include a single baroque pearl, freshwater pearls and moonstones, calming, soothing, feminine energy. Labradorite, pyrite, onyx and lapis lazuli stones, are mixed with ancient matte gray excavated Djenne Nila
glass beads that are at least 600 years old.
Beautiful and powerful when worn with a Stone Keeper.
Man or Woman.
The Cross is approximately 1” H X 1” W, the suspended cross and rock crystal segment approximately 2 1/2” long, the circle approximately 30” around.
