Inspired by the passage tomb at Newgrange. Dates back to 3200 B.C is older than the pyramids in Egypt and is officially a World Heritage site. At dawn on the December 21, the shortest day of the year, every year and the cut pattern reflects the sunlight as it shines directly into the central chamber of the tomb. It is believed that this was an ancient way of measuring the passage of time, like a calendar for the ancient farmers, or that the light has some religious significance for those in the afterlife. This pendant represents that reflected light in the tomb.
This Necklace comes in a branded gift box and makes a beautiful gift for a loved one.
