Miracle Spiral Shield Stone Brooch. This small round pewter brooch with Celtic spiral detail has a choice of amethyst or iona coloured stones. It fastens on a garment with a pin and safety catch.
Spirals can be traced back 7000 years, developing from observing natural examples in shells and plants. Clockwise and anticlockwise spirals represent the inner and outer evolution of the spirit respectively. In relation to the seasonal calendar these relate to the winter and summer, the year being polarised into light and dark seasons. In Celtic belief this translates to the theme in which one always moves from the darkness into the light.
