Spiral Focus with Flourite + Hematite and Quartz - by DreamingDragonDesign Spiral Focus with Flourite + Hematite and Quartz - by DreamingDragonDesign
Carved from white Corian and imbedded with five Hematite spheres, this sculptural meditation focus has a piece of green ribbon connecting it to a length of handcrafted chain.
On the back of the Focus, spiral carvings dance in a moon shaped inset. The pebbled texture invites you to run your fingers over this carvings curves and discover it's mobius-like complexity.
It's not exactly a standard Mobius loop, though it is based on one.
Hard to show in photos, but really awesome in person.


The chain alternates silver square spiral connectors with small bicone shaped hematite beads, three large Flourite beads in a mix of greens, blues and purple, and two tumbled Flourite beads in purple. It is tipped with a pointed Quartz crystal, which could easily be used as a pendulum while holding the Focus itself in your hand.

The ribbon has just enough slack to allow removal of the chain, if you wish to use or wear the Focus some other way, and can be used to hang up the chain by itself. Where the ribbon is knotted onto the chain's loop a small bit of glue has been added for security. Removing it from the chain is not advised.

I like how it is a little bit of a surprise when you turn it over, with the way the other side looks, to find the spirals.
Recognize that ribbon? :D

The fun part is the Mobius loop aspect...

:hug: It was exactly the right color! I couldn't resist, and it made me SO glad I saved it.
