Polar Bear Holed Pendant Stone


A naturally holed stone with an adorable polar bear upon the front. Painted in acrylic and coated with heavy duty varathane. I'm pleased to say this Spiritkeepers has been voted into Art's Top Ten images numerous times. The stone is formed from silt deposit in the Cascade Mountain region of Washington State (USA). The natural color of stone is visable on the back side. The opening of hole is a near perfect circle and overall size is perfect for a pendant. About 2" inches at widest point. Excellent detail of this piece is hard to capture in a photo due to the slight pearled shimmer -- this is cute & unique! No pattern exists for this bear -- the image was found within the natural shape of the rock.

A naturally holed stone, or holey stone, is also known as the Witches Amulet. It is the most powerful protection amulet for the witch because it IS the presense of the Goddess Herself. The opening in the stone is the Sacred Womb of the Earth. When strung with a red string or ribbon and hung over the bed it acts as a shield against bad dreams -- much like the Native American dream catcher. A holey stone may also be used for Full Moon magic by gazing at the moon through the hole.

The bear is a symbol for Earth energies, as they tend to travel the depths of caves and burrow deep in ground to hibernate. According to Ted Andrews in, "Animal Speaks", (Llewllyn Publications), bear medicine can teach you to go deep within so that you can make your choices and decisions from a position of power.
