This bead features a little stylized snake moving in a spiral to create a cylindrical form. The diamond pattern on its back and head, symbolize the brilliant possibilities of change, since all snakes shed their skin, and their image represents regeneration and transformation.
Many cultures revere the Snake for its mysterious aspects, which represents unseen knowledge and power. The coiled snake form also represents huge psychic energy and potential, as in the Kundalini Snake of the Ayurvedic Traditions.
The measurements of this bead are 3/8" W x 5/16" H x 5/16" D. Its internal diameter is 5mm, so it fits on to any neck chain, slide bracelet chain, leather collar, bracelet or cord with a diameter of 4mm or less.
