Blue Biggs Canyon Jasper Tree of Life
The concept of a tree of life, a many-branched tree illustrating the idea that all life on earth is related, has been used in science, religion, philosophy, mythology, and other areas. A tree of life is variously:
a) A motif in various world theologies, mythologies, and philosophies
b) A mystical concept alluding to the interconnectedness of all life on our planet
c) And a metaphor for common descent in the evolutionary sense.
This is a stunning genuine Blue Biggs Canyon Jasper wrapped with solid sterling silver wire in the form of the tree of life. The Blue Biggs mine was completely mined out and closed back in the 1960s which means it's incredibly rare and hard to find. When I saw this piece I knew I had to have it and put a tree of life on it, I knew if I didn't I would regret it.
This piece measures approximately 1 1/2" inches (3.81 cm) across and approximately 1 3/4" inches (4.445 cm) from the top of the bail to the bottom of the piece.
The pendant will come strung on a 27" inch (68.58 cm) satin cord and can come on a 16" or 18" sterling silver chain which can be purchased seperately for an additional $10. If the listing isn't appearing for the chains upon your purchase please just contact me and I will make a special listing for you.
As always thank you so much for looking and if you have questions, comments, or suggestions please feel free to contact me.
