Handmade Milky Quartz Pendant strung on an 18" tarnish-free 14K gold-filled chain.
Inspired by Aten/Aton, the Sun God in traditional ancient Egyptian religion. Aten was the original sun god that the more popular sun god Ra was derived from. Aten was more of an aspect of Ra and is depicted as a solar disk terminating in human hands. Aten creates the son in the mother's womb, the seed in men, and has generated all life.
PROPERTIES: Referred to as the "Wisdom Stone", Milky Quartz has calming and soothing properties that compare to "maternal love". Quartz in general is the second most common mineral on earth and can conduct electricity under pressure.
HISTORY: Ancient beliefs indicate that it was formed after a significant drop in temperature. This temperature was so high that even when it was set on fire, the stone could not melt. Numerous archaeological excavations have shown that milky quartz has existed for thousands of years, even as early as prehistoric times. It was used primarily for practical purposes, usually to make tools, and weapon points, or to start a fire. Since Antiquity, it has been attributed with healing powers, so this white mineral has become a real magical product with supernatural powers.
