Southern Cross Constellation Necklace

$20.75

mini-constellation-crux-01.pngThis necklace depicts the constellation "Crux", popularly known as the Southern Cross. Featured on several national flags, the Southern Cross has become emblematic of the Southern hemisphere, and has long served as a guide to bold navigators from Polynesia and elsewhere who plied the vast Southern seas!

The subtly domed shape of this pendant evokes the arc of the night sky, and gives it a pleasing tactility. On the reverse side, grid lines are engraved, indicating the celestial coordinates of the Southern Cross. Also indicated on the back is the Coalsack Nebula, a prominent feature which ancient Australians equated with the head of a great Emu.

Comes with an adjustable-length 2mm black leather necklace cord, as well as an instructional diagram which shows the names and designations of the individual stars.
