Raw Tourmaline Chakra Necklace
Raw Tourmaline Chakra Necklace, Old Ethiopian Telsum Amulet
This beautiful ethnic Chakra necklace features raw green Tourmaline nuggets and an Ethiopian Telsum amulet prayer bead. The amulet is old and made with primitive tools, so expect some normal imperfections. The exact metal content is unknown but it is a silver tone metal that has a higher silver grade than new Telsums. These African prayer bead pendants were used in Ethiopian Jewelry and believed to protect the wearer from "the evil eye."
Beautiful raw green Tourmaline nuggets are strung through the amulet and are joined by sterling silver flat oval decorative beads along the strand which connects to lightly oxidized sterling silver cable chain. The necklace closes with a sterling silver lobster clasp. This unique necklace pays homage to the beautiful Ethiopian ethnic jewelry of the past and would make an especially wonderful gift for someone with an October birthday.
Green Tourmaline is associated with the Heart Chakra and is said to attract luck, success, abundance and prosperity. It inspires creativity and may be used to project, create and manifest one's goals.
The total length of this necklace is approximately 19 inches (48cm). It can be made shorter or slightly longer if you prefer. Just leave instructions when you check out.
