Copper electroformed Rainbow Moonstone Moon Phase Moth on an 18” soldered gunmetal chain.
The moon is the closest heavenly body to earth. We can see it in the sky for three weeks out of four, and for thousands of years people have used its light to guide them. There is also a long-standing agricultural tradition regarding planting by the moon phases, The Old Farmer's Almanac. "The new and first-quarter phases, known as the light of the Moon, are considered good for planting above-ground crops, putting down sod, grafting trees, and transplanting. From full Moon through the last quarter, or the dark of the Moon, is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops."
Moths measure approximately 1.0” x 0.75”.
Size, shape, and color may vary as no stones are alike.
*liver of sulfur is applied to form a blackened (gunmetal) patina on the copper.
