Small Handcrafted Naja

Authentic natural Turquoise adorns this ancient and symbolic piece

“The inverted crescent pendant on squash-blossom necklaces, called the 'Naja' by the Navajo,  is found in various design forms throughout the world cultures.  As a crescent, this form goes back as far as the Paleolithic period.  It is mentioned in the book of Judges as an ornament worn around the necks of camels.  In the Phoenician culture, Astarte was the goddess of fertility and she was represented by the inverted crescent as well.   As pendants, the inverted crescent has also been found in ancient Roman, and Crete artifacts.” River Trading Post
