This listing is for a hand crafted crushed lapis and turquoise pendant with an OM symbol and beautiful scrolling detail. This pendant measures approximately 1 inch and was handmade in Kathmandu Nepal. In Tibetan Buddhism, "OM" is the supreme and most sacred syllable, consisting in Sanskrit of three sounds (A, U, M) representing body, speech, mind and other various fundamental triads. OM is believed to be the spoken essence of the universe; it is often understood as symbolizing the true "empty" character of reality, as that truth has been communicated by various historical Buddhas. Due to the handmade nature of this item, each pendant may differ slightly. Please contact me with any further questions.
