Third Eye Pinecone Ammonite Pendants
Beautiful Handcrafted Third Eye Pinecone Pendants
Third Eye Pinecones are hand-crafted from the center of the world’s densest Pinecone – a species which can only reproduce in forest fire – the Knobcone Pine. Third Eye Pinecones are sustainably wild-gathered high in the Santa Cruz Mountains, then carefully dried, aged, and cured, before one single cross-section is cut from the “heart” of each cone. Taking only one cross-section per cone allows the remainder of every Pinecone to be harvested and germinated for seed, helping to ensure the future abundance of this unique species of Conifer. After the initial cut, every pendant is painstakingly cleaned, sanded and polished, then artistically scrutinized to assure that the style and/or inlay perfectly match the unique “personality” of each individual cone. Finally, Third Eye Pinecones are sealed in an elegant, burnished wood-working resin to highlight and protect the organic fractal beauty unveiled within each talisman. Our talented team has spent years perfecting this complex process in a consistent and environmentally friendly fashion. Third Eye Pinecones come in an enormous array of different sizes, shapes, colors and hues. “Lighter” colored Pinecones are typically younger, and have spent less time off of the tree. Darker Pinecones are often older, and have sometimes spent one-to-three years curing. We believe every piece transmits the essence of the tree it came from. It’s our privilege to be able to share this gift with you.
Some of our most special Pinecones have been inlaid with a powerful Phosphorescent Powder – causing them to glow brightly in the dark! Activated by the UV-spectrum light abundant in natural sunshine (or to a lesser extent in most indoor lighting) both our Crushed Crystal and Rutilated Quartz "Glow-Cones" are infused with this amazing substance. Our specialty glow powder is non-toxic, visible to the naked eye for over 12 hours, and will only lose 5% of its glow over the next 10 years!!
