These elegant boho-style necklaces feature a lacquered cross-section of the ayahuasca vine above a round leopard jasper (leopardita) stone embedded in black macrame waxed thread. Ayahuasca is used by many Amazon shamans in traditional ceremonies. The necklace was made by an expert artisan from Iquitos who has worked with the Center for Amazon Community Ecology for ten years.
This necklace comes in two styles. One variety (NK68EAL) features a large round stone (1" to 1 1/4" wide and 1" to 1 1/2" tall) with an medium size ayahuasca piece (3/4" to 1" diameter). The other style (NK68EBS) has a smaller oval stone (5/8" wide and 1 1/4" tall). Both types are adorned with a pair of stone beads. The waxed twine has two knots that allow easy adjustment of the length to fit it over your head and then tighten.
Please remember that each stone is unique so its pattern and colors will vary from the one featured in this product's main photo.
