Socrates' Myth of the Cicadas: The Cicadas chirp and watch to see whether their music lulls humans to laziness or whether the humans can resist their sweet song. Cicadas were once humans who, in ancient times, allowed the first Muses to enchant them into singing and dancing for so long they stopped eating and sleeping and died without noticing. The Muses rewarded them with the gift of never needing food or sleep, and of singing from birth to death. The task of the Cicadas is to watch humans and report who honors the Muses and who does not.
This smaller-sized cicada has been adorned with a yellow bloodstone and electroformed in 100% copper to create a neutral yet stunning piece.
Bloodstone was historically considered a somewhat magical stone because of its ability to transmute negative energy and purify a space while protecting it at the same time. It is also said to heighten intuition and increases creativity, grounding and protecting.
The wingspan of this cicada measures just under 3 inches and comes on a 16-inch thin copper chain. If you would prefer a different length of chain or leather cord, please include a note at checkout.
All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
