Product Description

"Whoso loves, believes the impossible."
Why do we love the classic shape of the scallop shell? Because it represents the most loved of the seven muses - the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite (Roman - Venus). Myth has it that Aphrodite was born out of the sea's foam and the castrated genitals of her father, Uranus. She floated, perched on a scallop shell, to Paphos on the island of Cyprus, where she became the Goddess of love, beauty and fertility. Aphrodite helps us learn about living in harmony, and is associated with the most emotional of the experiences of womanhood; she teaches how to be a sister, a daughter, a wife and lover. She helps you understand what it means to bear a child, experience passion and appreciate others. Her scallop shell symbol is a timeless representation of our capacity to love.

Our classic Scallop Shell Talisman III is, of course, completely handcrafted from Sterling Silver, and Fossil ivory in our studio. The two-sided disk is of dark mammoth ivory backed by light fossil walrus ivory. The disk is free to spin during your musing. 1 1/8 inch high, 3/4 inch wide. Our Scallop Shell Talisman III will draw many comments.

Complete with Sterling Silver chain.

Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
