Batty Family: Necklace w/ Snowflake Obsidian, Copper & Czech Glass

This lovely necklace features glass crystals, hand-painted ceramic bats, deep garnet red Czech glass beads and bright copper accents. All findings are bronze-finished steel or Tibetan silver.

The total beaded length, including the lobster clasp, is approximately 19.25″.

Metaphysically speaking, glass represents transformation, as well as communication, rebirth and the blending of elements. Think of how glass comes to be, with sand (earth) being formed into a new material with the use of fire, which cannot exist without air.

Copper tends to stimulate and encourage optimism, independence, harmony, luck, sexuality, intuition and general vitality. Copper is a wonderful conductor of healing energy and its properties are useful in many areas of healing.

Obsidian is a fantastic protection stone; it repels negativity and helps dissolve confusion and untruth. Obsidian aids in healing traumas and emotional wounds, including those from past lives. It is a stone of strength, compassion, honesty and clear sight. This is also a stone connected to death and rebirth, and its energy can aid in divinatory practice.

Amber has wonderful metaphysical properties, including strong healing and protection energies. Wear to rid yourself of negative or funky energy, help yourself find emotional balance and allay fears.

It is often associated with the sacral and solar plexus chakras but can be used to help heal and balance any part of the body. Traditionally, amber has been used to seal a deal, including marriage, and has been carried by warriors and lovers for good fortune. It is used to foster unconditional love and heal emotional wounds.
