Celestial Matrix Turtle Single Pendant
According to ancient Chinese cosmology (dated from around 6,000 BC), the universe was divided into four quadrants marking the beginning and end of the winter and summer solstices and the fall and spring equinoxes. Each quadrant was visible in its entirety only in the season with which it is associated. These heavenly quadrants were called the Four Celestial Palaces, and each "palace" was represented by a guardian animal, the Dragon - Spring, Phoenix - Summer, Tiger - Fall and Turtle - Winter.
This turtle (synonomous wth tortoise) is also referred to as the “Black Warrior” because of it’s strength, endurance and longevity. This turtle is said to have provided the first mathematical formula for cosmic energy inscribed on the back of it's shell. For more information, please see the Celestial Guardians webpage.
Pendants come with a black leather neck cord (17" with 2" silver extention chain) or silver key chain. Please make your selection when ordering.
