This obsidian Egyptian pendulum has a flawless black shine that really shows off the 'pendule de thoth' shape of the pendulum. Obsidian is a grounding crystal traditionally used for scrying. It is believed to dissolve shock, fear and energy blocks. It is also said to have an optimistic mood lifting effect that can combat depression.
Egyptian pendulums are based on the design of the Ancient Egyptian 'ouadj' amulet, which was often tucked into the bandages of Egyptian mummies. It was apparently used to protect and guide the dead in the next world. Egyptian pendulums can be used in the same way as other pendulums but they are believed to have additional abilities, such as taking on the waveform of something else e.g. an intention, colour or herb.
Our Egyptian pendulums are expertly carved in the traditional shape. They have a nice weight to them and a chunky rounded shape. Each one comes on a 25cm silver chain, as shown.
