When an Elemental introduces itself to a new druid, it presents the druid with a stone sphere. The stone sphere is a symbol of the Elemental itself, serves to connect the druid to the Elemental, the Elemental to the druid, and can be used by the druid as a focus while learning to anchor themselves in the different head spaces needed to speak with Gaia's spirits of biomes and other earthly elements. Elementals can be called upon by druids to perform favors and can even defend the druid when needed. Inspired by the Iron Druid Chronicles series by Kevin Hearne.
Details: The Locket is solid bronze and is made up of six Celtic triskele knots woven from newly budding branches. The triskele is a symbol of the foundation of the Celtic world - earth, sea, and sky. The locket opens so that the Elemental sphere can be held or changed for another. The Elemental Sphere pendant measures 35.5 mm top to bottom and 26.5 mm wide in diameter. It weighs 13.4 grams.

A lovingly faithful pendant, exactly as described in Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid series. Both delicate in design but hefty in construction, this locket is built to endure alongside the Druid who wears it. The Elemental sphere is nice and secure inside. I'll for certain be back to pick up a few more spheres!
