This pendant is inspired by an ancient Greek coin, from 404-340 BC.
The turtle design was used on Aegean coins to commemorate their maritime power.
The turtle is a sacred figure as it represents Mother Earth. The meaning of the Turtle symbol signifies good health and long life. The turtle has great longevity living up to 150 years. ... The hard shell of the turtle represents perseverance and protection. Female turtles produce a great number of eggs. This had predictable influence on human thought in regarding turtles as a symbol of universal fertility. ... Water is one of the oldest symbols for fertility, as water brings life to the land and nourishes all life.
The coin is made in white bronze, and oxidized.
