Fine Print: Viking Treasure chocker has authentic bronze Viking artifact from 800-1000 AD.
Vikings were Scandinavian pirates from the late 8th to late 11th centuries, who had a profound impact on the early medieval history of Scandinavia, the British Isles, France, Estonia, Kievan Rus’ and Sicily. Being expert sailors and navigators Vikings voyaged across the seas and spent most of the time outside the homeland. This little centrepiece is a used-to-be button from viking’s shirt. Elena framed this for you in pink tourmalines and sapphires.
Necklace has 2 strands: one in tourmaline and the other in sapphires, nicely linked in copper double-strand lock for comfortable wear.
The name “tourmaline” comes from the Sinhalese term “turmali,” which was the name given to all coloured crystals on the island of Sri Lanka at that time, late 1600’s -early 1700’s, when this crystal was discovered. Pink tourmaline is also known as rubellite, because it was thought to be rubies. Their similarities in appearance are so strong that the stones in the Russian crown jewels believed to be rubies for centuries, are now thought to be tourmalines. It’s believed that tourmaline aids in understanding oneself and others and promotes self-confidence and diminishes fear, that’s why it can be a good crystal for travellers.
The word “sapphire” comes from the Greek word “sappheiros” meaning “blue color.” Sapphires can be different in colour and purity. Sapphires in this Viking Treasure necklace are natural and untreated, in classic blue and fresh pink colours. It is known as the stone of new love and commitment and is claimed to be useful in encouraging faithfulness and loyalty. Sapphire is thought to bring peace of mind, serenity and prosperity.
