Item No. MSTW300
Stunning statement pendant hangs from sturdy but intricate sterling (925 chain) with a front toggle clasp. 15 inches (or choose from 16" or 17") depending on the look you want. Pendant is slightly larger and heavier than a quarter. Double sided coin: Cross of St. Benedict on one side, and classic St. Benedict image on the other. Sterling silver coin with hematite soldering surround. Chain is 925 silver. 1.2 inch drop, front-closing toggle clasp.
On the arms of the cross of Saint Benedict are the initial letters of a rhythmic Latin prayer: Crux sacra sit mihi lux. Nunquam draco sit mihi dux (May the holy cross be my light - May the dragon never be my guide). In the angles of the cross, the letters C S P B stand for Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti (The cross of our holy father Benedict). Saint Benedict of Nursia was a founder of Christian monastic communities and a rule giver for monks living in community. His purpose may be gleaned from his Rule, namely that "Christ may bring us all together to life eternal." He is patron saint of many things, especially warding off negative spirits.
