Silvered bronze, over 1” width. The crescent moon with the bottom formed as two cusps. The crescent tips and the cusp ends supporting a cross. This is a blend of Viking Pagan mythology on which they relied for navigation and Christianity, to which most Viking had converted by the end of the 11th century. As with most other conversions, elements of the old religion lingered and were incorporated Some persist today in the form of superstitions. Vikings converted and fought valiantly in the First Crusade but, perhaps more than other pagan converts, retained elements of their earlier mythology as it was inseparable from their understanding of astronomy on which navigation was based. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver surface restored on a modern Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certification of authenticity.
