Merlinite is the metaphysical name for Dendritic Opal.
Mineralogically, it is Opalized Agate with Dendritic growths of Manganese inside. ‘Dendrite’ comes from the Latin “Dendron” meaning ‘tree-like’.. and these inclusions are indeed reminiscent of roots or branches.
Spiritually, Merlinite is a force to be reckoned with. It is invaluable for shamanic work, past-life recall, channeling, and psychic development. Where there is Merlinite - there is synchronicity! The duality of this stone- the luminous expanse of white with sharp black markings- is a perfect metaphor for its ability to bring spirit world energy into the physical plane.
This very special, extra LARGE sized specimen pendant is suspended from solid copper 32” chain.
These pendants have gone through a copper-plating process known as electroforming. It deposits a thick layer of copper onto the pendant - which also works to enhance the inherent energetic properties of the stone itself, as copper is an excellent conductor.
Copper has been worn for its healthful benefits for millennia; copper jewelry dates back to ancient Egyptian times. The absorption of micro minerals has proven helpful in joint stiffness, pain, and inflammation. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus it's simply beautiful to wear!
