Keys Of The Crossroads VII
$185.00 On Sale
Hecate is a goddess in Ancient Greek mythology, most often shown holding a pair of torches, a key, and in later periods depicted as triple-bodied which is where the famous imagery of the triple moon goddess is pulled from. She is variously associated with crossroads, the liminal space between life and death, night, light, magic, witchcraft, the Moon, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, graves, ghosts, and necromancy. Her functions extended beyond the realms of the heavens, earth, the seas, and the underworld.
In her form as a triple-goddess, Hecate was strongly associated with the crossroads. She was portrayed as a liminal goddess who can cross from the underworld to the physical world with ease. Her liminality stemmed from her parentage and mythology, where she was able to move between her position as a Titan and a goddess. Her position as a liminal figure and a goddess of roads and entryways illuminates her position as a protector.
Belomorite is a variety of oligoclase moonstone which was found in North Karelia, Russia. It was so named after the White Sea (Beloe More in russian transcription). More recently known as Sunstone Moonstone, visually it is a reflection of just that. At certain angles you see a sparkling orange and white shimmer of sunstone, but when the light hits it illuminates in a unique vibrant blue more signature to moonstone. It contains a beautiful duality of properties of both sun and moonstone - containing the duality of night and day.
