Thors Hammer, Mjolnir Viking Copper Pendant With Natural Emerald
Completely hand casted, handmade and kiln fired pure copper “Thors Hammer” pendant with a deep green natural emerald gemstone bezel setting. The copper pendant is oxidized to give it an antique look. In the Norse mythology, Thor’s hammer is the most valued treasure of the gods. It provides protection, strength and power to the bearer.
Thor the Norse God of Thunder & Lightning uses it to defend both gods and humans from the giants, who represent the destructive forces of nature. Vikings wore the Thor's Hammer as an amulet of protection and power.
It became increasingly important after the introduction of Christianity in Scandinavia. Those who chose not to abandon the religion of Odin, Thor and Freya (the “Old Way”) wore hammer amulets to express loyalty to the faith of their forefathers. The hammer is used as a symbol of Thor’s protection.

Metals can develop patina over time if unused, and can be cleaned with a polishing cloth. Copper ages very nicely.
About Copper And Bronze:
Bronze/ Copper: these metals may discolor the skin green. It does not apply to everybody but please be aware that this might happen. I do seal all bronze and copper pendants with renaissance wax, but sealing might wear off after a certain time and need to be re-sealed.
Since the tarnishing process is facilitated by the oxygen in the air, it is advisable to keep your copper/ bronze jewelry in a plastic bag to slow down the formation of patina. You can also put an anti-tarnish strip in the bag.
Make sure you wipe your bronze jewelry dry before storing it: Leaving it to dry in contact with the air makes it easier for patina to form.
