The Talisman series is an exploration into the power of natural crystals. Tools for Magic. The crystals used in these pieces are discovered through adventure and are hand selected. Each piece is unique and special.
The Lemurian talismans are a special subsection of the family Items that use these crystals are absolutely one-of-a-kind but we categorize them in five (5) distinct weight groups on the website (see link) for simplicity. The size and shape range within these groups vary and you can see some of the examples of this variation in the photographs to the left. The crystal you receive will not be the exact one in the picture, these are examples, yours will be unique and specially yours.
AG:ACID GOLD. Brass substrate is electroplated with 18k gold and then dipped into acid to create the subtly destroyed surface. The concentration of the plating solution, air temperature and time in the acid bath all play integral roles in the final result and exist in a delicate balance. No two items are the same and these nuances / variations should be seen as a characteristic of the product.
KA:BLACK STERLING. Black Sterling is acheived by the oxidization of sterling silver. This blackened state will fade or scratch off over time but we will be happy to help teach you how to re-oxidize your pieces if you are interested (it is a very easy process). Additionally, please note that Black Sterling tends to look darker in photograph than in person.
