My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk.
-John Keats

Ancient Greeks used poison hemlock to execute criminals and other state prisoners; one of the most famous is Socrates. The typical symptoms for poisoning in humans include pupil dilation, dizziness, and trembling followed by slowing of the heartbeat, paralysis of the central nervous system, and muscle paralysis.

This branch of poison hemlock has been carefully preserved and electroformed in 100% copper. It is adorned with one of its own pressed flowers, underneath a faceted clear quartz.

This piece measures just under 2.5 inches in length and comes on a 24-inch antiqued 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.
