Unique Natural Wood Pendant *Root of Rowan* for Strong Magical Protection!

This is a beautiful pendant made from a slice of the root of a Rowan tree. It still has the bark attached (or whatever it is that roots have in place of bark) and the interesting wrinkly texture makes a wonderful tactile contrast with the silky smoothness of the wood. The wood has seasoned to a pleasing vanilla caramel shade, with some fascinating swirly grain patterns. If you compare it to the wood of above-ground Rowan you'll see that it never attains the dark amber colouring, but stays comparatively pale. Also, the outside of the "bark" is much lighter in colour too. The shape is reminiscent of an ear or a foetus, and the dark lining adds an interesting twist. This would be perfect to wear if you suspect you may be the victim of malevolent magic from any source, but is beautiful enough to wear even when you don't need any additional protection.

I've been told by a root worker that the roots of a plant contain its very essence, a kind of distilled version of all its magical properties. It's not exactly stronger, but somehow purer or more concentrated.

These undecorated pendants are popular with anyone who prefers to be a little more discreet about their beliefs and doesn’t always want to wear anything too overtly pagan. On the most simple level they're a lovely way to carry a piece of nature with you throughout your day, and if you choose the wood type for the magical qualities you require and wear it with intent, then a pendant like this one will surround you in a bubble of sacred space and envelop you in its subtle influence. If you don’t want to wear it then you can carry it in your pocket or just hang it somewhere in your home or car.

It has been finished with a light coat of oil and will come strung on a waxed cotton cord, so it contains no animal products or metal parts.

Rowan is very protective, especially against lightning and evil witchery, and can be useful in healing. It is said to increase psychic powers and bring power and success. It is allegedly the best wood to use if dowsing for metal. It is also the traditional choice for Druid's staffs.

Size: About an inch and five eighths long, an inch and a quarter across and an eighth of an inch thick.
42mm x 30mm x 4mm.

Please be aware that some countries do not allow the importation of any wooden items that still have the bark attached. It is up to you to ensure that an item is not in breach of the customs regulations of your country before you buy.

This item will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture and care instructions.
