This intoxicating necklace is a feast for the eyes with gorgeous green turquoise taking the spotlight! Mixed in for fantastic contrast is bright lime Czech glass, copper freshwater pearls, an exotic hammered copper bead from the Karen Hill Tribe in Northern Thailand, an exotic copper and twisted brass bead from Nepal and a bold Tibetan bronze double dorje pendant.
"The Tibetan Double Dorje was originally fashioned as a type of fist-iron ritual tool held in the right hand during religious ceremonies. Dorje is a Sanskrit word meaning thunderbolt and diamond. The symbolic nature of a diamond - strong with the ability to cut any surface but not be cut itself and the thunderbolt - a powerful and irresistible force of enlightenment. The Tibetan Dorje represents firmness and power of spirit; a symbol for the nature of reality, or sunyata, indicating endless creativity, potency, and skillful activity. Known for it's double facets, the shape of the Dorje symbolizes the two forms of truth, relative and absolute. It is joined together by a brass center sphere known as the sphere of reality."
