Sacred Site Jewelry: Snow White Quartz
Glittering snow white quartz is a symbol of fertility and purity. It stimulates our innate capacities for child-like wonder, compassion and empathy. We pair this with the spiral coil pendant, which represents the ancient spiral glyphs found in stone at the sacred site of Newgrange.
A bit of history: Newgrange is a prehistoric monument in County Meath, Ireland. Archaeologists classified Newgrange as an ancient temple, a place of astrological, spiritual, religious and ceremonial importance. Just before 9 AM on the morning of the winter solstice, December 21, the Newgrange passage is pierced by a shaft of sunlight which illuminates a stone basin at the end of the passage and lights up a series of intricate spiral carvings in the rock.
The chamber is brilliantly lit for around 17 minutes and this solar display lasts for five days around the time of the Winter Solstice. Newgrange is famous for its snow white quartz from the Wicklow Mountains which, make up a portion of this striking structure.
The snowy quartz are approximately 3/4 to 1 inch in size and come in the collapsible coil with a sliver plated chain. This comes with the metaphysical properties of the stone, and how to clean, work with and utilize as a healing tool. It is paired with a complimentary color coordinated bag for storage.
