Meteorite Ouroboros Jewelry Dragon Serpent Bronze Pendant Necklace
The Ouroboros is a symbol for an emblematic serpent. This symbol has been used by many cultures from ancient to modern times, and is one of the oldest mystical symbols in the world.
In this authentic Ouroboros meteorite jewelry, the serpent is represented as continually devouring itself (with its tail in its mouth) thereby establishing an endless cycle of renewal and rebirth. As a gnostic and alchemical symbol the Ouroboros expresses the unity of all things, material and spiritual, which never disappear but are eternally changing forms in cycles of destruction and re-creation.
The concept of the Ouroboros gave the German chemist August Kekule von Stradonitz insight into how carbon atoms were linked to form the benzene ring. The astrophysicist, Sir Martin Rees, used the Ouroborus to illustrate the various scales of the universe, ranging from the subatomic from the tail to up to the supra-galactic, at the head. The tail and the head meeting complete the circle, Rees says, by establishing the intimate links generated between the microworld and the macroworld - the cosmos. The past (the tail) appears to disappear but really moves into an inner domain or reality, vanishing from view yet still existing.
The Milky Way Galaxy, the dim glowing band of light arching across the night sky, is the inspiration for the ancient concept of the Ouroboros. Myth refers to a “serpent of light” residing in the heavens, arching over the sky like a band in the heavens.
This bronze Ouroboros jewelry with the meteorite NWA 869 from Algeria, in the center, makes great cosmic jewelry with a fantastic story to tell!
This meteorite has a few white inclusions, and if you can imagine it they look like peering serpent eyes from the dark background of the night sky.
