A piece of hand-mined Scottish Lewisian, set in a 925 sterling silver Scottish Thistle Design.
Legend has it that a group of Scottish warriors was once saved from an attack by Norseman because one of the attackers stepped on a thistle and screamed in pain and woke the Scots who could repel the attack.
This story might not be more then a mere legend but the thistle is one of Scotlands most important symbols and it can be found on many buildings, in logos of companies and on the uniforms of police officers.
The Scottish Lewisian is hand-mined on the Isles of Lewis, Harris and North Highlands.
Lewisian is part of the ancient bedrock of Scotland and it is one of the oldest rocks in the world, as it is estimated to be about 3 billion years old!
The unique combination of colours and structures comes from the different minerals that the Lewisian is composed of, these are mainly Feldspar, Quartz and Epidote.
