Atropa belladonna is a Eurasian perennial with reddish, bell-shaped flowers that bear glossy, black berries. Other names for the plant include belladonna, deadly nightshade, and devil’s herb. The plant earns its sinister nicknames, as its foliage and berries are extremely toxic, containing potent dosages of tropane alkaloids. Its most common name, belladonna, derives from Italian, meaning “beautiful woman.” Historically, women have used the herb’s oil to dilate and enlarge the pupils for a seductive effect, however, it is best known as the plant of choice for assassins through out history.
Labradorite is a highly mystical stone and is one of the most powerful protectors of the mineral kingdom. It safeguards against negativity and shields the aura while strengthening natural energies from within. It’s great for enhancing willpower and feelings of inner worth, thus relieving anxiety. Labradorite heightens intuition and psychic abilities, and for those who chose to explore alternative levels of consciousness, it provides safe exploration. It has a strong connection with the higher chakras and is extremely potent if used at the third eye chakra in meditation.
This jewelry piece uses a natural stone that has been prospected, cut, and polished by hand. That being said, please expect your stone to be unique and have organic qualities. This includes uneven coloration, minor surface pocking, striations, and/or inclusions during formation of the stone. These characteristics are naturally occurring and are still considered quality grade for jewelry. Only stones that meet Dichotomie’s standards will be used for your jewelry piece. If you receive your order and you have concerns about the appearance, we will be happy to work something out on a case by case basis.
