The Celts lived in western and central Europe in the 1st millennium BC. Celtic mythology, which included earth gods, various woodland spirits, and sun deities, was particularly rich in elfin demons and guardian spirits, beings that still pervade the lore of peoples of Celtic ancestry. Thor, god of thunder and lightning, symbolizes strength and power. His hammer is worn for psychic protection. It measures about 1 1/4″ high and is new and unused pewter material and comes on a black woven 34″ long adjustable cord. Each pendant comes with a Celtic symbol card with descriptions of each of the 12 different Celtic Visions designs and is stored in a smoke and pet free environment.
