The elongated shape and slightly curved heart shape of this intensely blue gem echo the shape of a Blue Lotus bud. Blue is the rarest of color varieties among this water borne flower, and that rarity symbolizes a particular spiritual wisdom and the ability to recognize personal Truths.
On the carving side, The Key and Lock motif is stylized into Lotus flowers to emphasize this eternal symbol of Inner Knowledge and the quest for a Higher Good. The keyhole is itself a singular Lotus blossom, floating in the implied watery realm of the stone’s color. The petals opening around the keyhole emphasize the importance of the open space both within and around the potential portal.
The Key has a Lotus bloom on top, floating in a water ring, which reminds us that actions flow out from the center. The Key shaft is a sinuous Stem, reaching back toward the part of the key which enters the lock first. The teeth of the Key are flames, which evokes the fire that must be present to start any process of Self Discovery.
These concepts can combine in your life to create a sense of Liberation, an unlocking of fresh potential to aid in your emotional freedom.
The curving petal border of the pendant reminds us that it takes many components to make up the whole. Their individual energies are combined to create a sense of time, implied in the regular pattern. These petals also remind us of the cycles of Passage from Bud to Fallen Petal.

A note about Labradorite's colors:Every effort is made to capture the best color of the gem when the item is photographed for presentation. This depends largely on the angle of the light on the stone when the image is captured. Labradorite's inherent nature means that under the right conditions, the color flash will be intensely luminous and vibrant. On the other hand, when you view your new piece under some conditions, it could appear very dark, or with even with only minimal color. This visual reminder of life's changeable nature is part of Labradorite's allure. You can incorporate this idea along with the specific emotional symbolism built into each one-of-a-kind, handmade silver setting. Enjoy!
