Zandra Lorena Sajbin creates a pendant of extraordinary beauty in honor of Maya astronomy. She crafts it by hand of sterling silver. A quetzal bird and a temple appear on one side, superimposed on a disk of lilac jade. The other side is dark green jade with a polished crescent moon. Maya astronomers sought to predict eclipses, which they likened to the galaxy taking a breath and which influenced human conscience.
Lilac jade is a natural stone. Its color will vary due to its white, green, blue and rose veins.
