This 1.5" soft enamel lapel pin combines a black soft enamel with a shining nickel finish to make a stylish and subtle accessory to any ensemble.
Lead is the prima matera, the primal matter. The basest element, it represents the putrefaction and decay necessary for new life. Alchemy is concerned with the transformation from base to pure and therefore lead is as important to the alchemist as gold. In astrology, the alchemical metal of lead is associated with the god Saturn and therefore concepts of generation, dissolution, plenty, wealth, periodic renewal and liberation. This symbol mimics the scythe of Saturn, and bears a shape in parts derived from the old Hebrew letter Taw, and the ancient Greek Tau.

I love the design of this pin. It's so cool! The quality is excellent. There was a little delay in shipping but Strix was prompt in notifying me, and even sent me an additional pin (mercury, which is also awesome) for the wait. Saturn is one of my ruling planets so I love having this to represent that. Thank you!
