Historically, serpents and snakes represent fertility or a creative life force. They are also symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing.
This piece is similar to the "Death" tarot card - not necessarily meaning a physical death, but representing the symbolic end of something in life. It celebrates not only that in nature, everything must come to an end, but the serpent reminds us that new beginnings are on the horizon as well.
Labradorite is a feldspar stone that was first discovered in Labrador, Canada. The legend goes that an Inuit warrior discovered the astounding array of colours inside the gemstones and perceived them as the lights of the aurora trapped inside the rocks, so he gave them an almighty whack with his spear to free them to the skies in which they belonged. In metaphysical circles, labradorite is known as a stone associated with transformation and magic, courage and mysticism.
