A gorgeous, hand-carved golden sheen obsidian with an intricate medusa design, with five real snake vertebrae at the top. It has been electroformed in 100% copper around the edges of the stone to create one solid piece. 

The most well-known story of Medusa involves Medusa being raped by Poseidon in the temple of Athena, who became enraged and punished Medusa by turning her into a monster who would turn men to stone with a look. However, I prefer an alternate version - that Athena's curse was rather a gift, to forever protect her from the lust of men.

This large piece measures about 3 inches tall by 2 inches across, and comes on an antiqued 24-inch 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.
