    Did you know that Labradorite, discovered first in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770, is believed to bring out the best in people? Labradorite also relieves anxiety and stress and increases one’s intuitive abilities. Quanyin is the goddess of mercy and considered to be the physical embodiment of compassion. She is an all-seeing, all-hearing being who is called upon by worshipers in times of uncertainty, despair, and fear. This double dose of goodness is encased in repoussé 925 sterling silver with lotus flowers both front and back. The pendant is strung with a double row of special Filipino wooden beads, inlaid with mussel shell imported from New Zealand. Beautiful blue labradorite rondelles and vintage sterling silver floral diamond beads complete this unique necklace. 28″ long with a 2″ pendant.
