What a blessing this enchanting little Goddess Suncatcher is! With a spiral at her center, and the words "Blessed Be" over her head, she's the perfect bit of magic for your pagan home. Place one of these suncatchers in any window of your house, and let the Austrian crystal add a rainbow to your room.
The Goddess Suncatcher is made of lead-free pewter, and measures 3" tall, including the crystal.
What is an Austrian crystal? Austrian crystals are a type of rhinestone, so named for their rich history originating on the shores of the Rhine River which borders the country of Austria. In the 18th and 19th centuries, inventors from the area developed and improved upon methods of making man-made glass crystals which mimicked the sparkle and shine of naturally occurring rock crystals. Since that time, the technology has steadily advanced, resulting in crystals of superior quality and a reasonable price.
So what makes the rainbow? These suncatchers use Aurora Borealis crystals, or AB crystals, as their focal point. In part, the spectacular flashes of color come from the cut and polish of the crystals. In addition though, these crystals have been enhanced with super-fine metallic coatings applied to their surfaces, which catch the light, and transform it into a rainbow of color.
I received this order very quickly, which is great because it was a gift. The online picture did not do the suncatcher justice. My friend hung it in her car and the crystal really catches the light. Gryphon's Moon provides a great selection of products. The website is also divided into easy to navigate categories.
Thanks for the great service.
