Most of us are familiar with the six-pointed star, or the star of David, as a symbol of Jewish culture and traditions. Its official meaning is to represent "new beginnings for Israel".
However, the Star of David is also the shape of a hexagram, an ancient symbol with deep spiritual meanings dating back to the 10th century BCE.
Made of two triangles, one pointing up and one pointing down, it is known in alchemy and astrology to represent male and female concepts or ideas, each of which have different attributes of character and emotion.
The two triangles also represent the male and female aspects of the brain, usually referred to as the right and left brain.
The right brain is feminine and allows us to feel emotions and be creative and nurturing.
The left brain focuses more on analysis, objectivity and being logical.
Thus, the star represents a balance and union of these two sides.
From a spiritual point of view, a balanced mind opens up the pineal gland, known as the "all-seeing third eye", or the link to higher consciousness or spiritual realms.
This beautiful pendant features a smaller star woven into a larger one, creating an intricate pattern that adds to its mythical look.
