24k gold plated Silver, Labradorite.
The CREATIO medallion. A hand carved cameo onto Labrodorite stone. The depiction on this gem is a mysterious figure that resembles the figure of a greek god. Most Greek gods had similar characteristics, both good and bad, to human beings. They were portrayed as men or women, but they were thought to be immortal and to hold special powers. The gods could exercise their powers on one another and on human beings as they wished, for their own vengeance or pleasure.
Shattered from the middle, the stones rupture adds a poetic charm to it’s essence. A metaphor emphasizes the fact that even the immortal can be damaged.
The medallion holds a secret engraving on the back. “Nothing comes from nothing” - A philosophical dictum first argued by Parmenides. It is associated with ancient Greek cosmology. it means that the universe was formed from eternal matter; as creatio ex nihilo, "creation out of nothing"
