Hidden shrine of the unknowable, concealed behind nether veils guarding the astral void. Voice of insanity speaking truths in murmurs of alchemical riddles. Powers of dream, visions and omens of things to come. Behold the talisman of the Oracle.
This stylish glass horn pendant has several small pieces of rock collected from Mount Parnassus in Greece, at the site of the ancient Oracle of Delphi. The vial is shaped like a horn or tusk and has a bronze-colored metal bail to accept a chain or necklace of your choice (chain not included). The Oracle of Delphi is world-famous for being the source of prophecies and wisdom in the ancient Greek world. Kings, nobles, philosophers, and common men came from all over the known world to seek answers from the Oracle. The Oracle of Delphi was located at the foot of Mount Parnassus in Greece. It was thought that the Greek God Apollo spoke through the Oracle. Today, the site is a tourist attraction and the home of several ruins from the classical period of Greek history. Modern law forbids the removal of artifacts from the site, but I acquired this rock from an old 19th century collection. I have broken off small pieces to offer as samples. Once these are gone, I will have no more of this unusual and rare material.
