I've been a bit obsessed about alchemy for a very long time. It was the medieval forerunner of modern chemistry, based on the supposed transformation of matter by scientists. Alchemy was particularly focused on attempts to convert base metals into gold - a seemingly magical process of creation or transformation. With this symbolism in mind, the magic of alchemy can apply to all parts of your life and, when applied consciously, transformation can occur.
This petrified palm root "stone" perfectly represents the magic of alchemy; through time it has been frozen into fire - an alchemical transformation - of wood to flame. Delicate yet sturdy 14 karat yellow gold prongs and a sterling silver frame hold the "stone" in place. The pendant hangs close to your heart on a 20 inch sterling chain. Set your intentions, work for them, and let the alchemy begin.
