Hi all! I just got this turquoise and obsidian arrowhead necklace today and had to share my thoughts right away! It was love at first sight that is for sure! This necklace is so well made. The chain and clasp are sturdy and you can just see that it won’t break any time soon. And the craftsmanship! The beads are beautiful. I just love the black onyx mixed with the turquoise. You get a pop of color here and there with the blue as well as the silver accents. Therefore, it is quite versatile and can be worn by both women and men. I can certainly see native men wearing this necklace.
Further, I got wonderful service by the Lori Lynne, the shop owner. I live in Canada and she shipped my order almost right away and I received it within a reasonable time frame. As a Canadian, I was happy to see a Canadian artist on Etsy! Her shop PicCreations is full of wonders, jewelry made with gemstones and crystal. I am obviously fond of obsidian and turquoise, hence why I bought this particular necklace.You can also find obsidian stones in my resources section here.
And as you can see from the pictures below, the necklace itself is just gorgeous. The arrowhead pendant is just of such quality. I have had other arrowhead pendants and they were certainly not as gorgeous.
What is the meaning of the different stones?
As I have posted before, the turquoise is a sacred stone used in ceremonies, particularly by the Navajo people. It is a healing stone, a balancing stone that promotes inner calm.
Black onyx reminds me of my childhood. I used to have a black onyx ring that my mom bought me. I cherished that ring! Everyone would ask me if it was a mood ring (remember those?) and I was offended every time, telling everyone who would listen that it was black onyx. Ah memories. But I digress. Black onyx is a stone that promotes strength and self-confidence (I was certainly projecting that while talking about my ring as a child!). It also helps feeling more grounded and centered and balanced from within, something we could all use.
I love obsidian! I would wear it all the time. It is THE stone to carry to protect against negativity. I personally have one in every one of my jackets and in my medicine pouches. As a black stone is it a protective stone that shields the owner. It also symbolizes self-control and resilience. And it is formed as lava cools down within the earth. How cool is that?
When you combine all of those stones on one necklace, you do have one powerful and cool necklace. And let’s not forget about the arrowhead! A symbol of alertness and a representation of the hunter/gatherer in the native culture. The one on the necklace is 2 inches long, just a good length. I know what I am wearing tomorrow at work 🙂
Finally, as Lori Lynne says, stones will absorb both positive and negative energy. Therefore, they need to be cleansed regularly. I would say smudge it. Use sage and smudge the necklace. And a reminder that you can get this turquoise and obsidian arrowhead necklace in Lori Lynne’s shop. So what are your thoughts on this necklace? Are you a fan?
