Celestial Cobalt Blue Glass Spirit Bottle Pendant

  • $ 2750

I have taken a custom made blown glass cobalt blue cylinder, wrapped the top in silver wire, attached silver moon and star charms, and and added a natural cork stopper. This comes with a 24 inch silver chain. Comes with a small quartz crystal point. You can also fill with your own herbs, crystals, or other keepsake treasures.

Glass bottles have been around for centuries and most experts agree that widespread use began around 1500 Egypt and Mesopotamia. Early glass bottles were also produced by the Phoenicians. Not long after, tales began to appear about spirits living in bottles. Such tales most likely originated from the sounds caused by wind blowing over bottle openings.

With much retelling of the stories, it was soon believed that spirits could be captured inside bottles. This led to the practice of leaving bottles open at night to capture spirits, and when morning came, the spirits would be dispelled by the sun. This belief was carried from Africa to Europe and America, and examples of Spirit Bottle Trees, Gazing Balls, and Witch Balls are still in evidence today. Cobalt blue seems to be one of the more popular colors, perhaps because the element of water is often used in cleansing rituals.
