CHIVALRY - a stunning piece of polished Burmite suspended in Sterling Silver. This is a gorgeous, eye-catching pendant handmade from a piece of Burmite that we bought in Myanmar.
Take a look at the character in the amber - it displays all the wonderful internal fractures that reflect its journey from a sticky resin around 100 million years ago, to this fossilised little work of art.
An added bonus in this piece is the centipede-like invertebrate capture in its centre - this can best be seen in the magnified photos.
Burmite has been used by the Chinese to make jewellery since around 200BCE. They believe that it is a symbol of courage and bravery and that it contains the soul of a tiger.
Look at the photos and watch the brief video - you'll appreciate just how cool this pendant is!
