Stryx Owl Black Crystal Necklace by Alchemy Gothic. An antiqued and polished pewter articulated necklace of a stylized owl-like creature with a giant black genuine Swarovski crystal body and separate, deeply modeled wings. The owl is the companion to Athena the Greek goddess of wisdom, and an intimately close escort into The Underworld. In Ancient Roman mythology, the owl also had a darker aspect, being considered synonymous with the stryx, a type of vampire that fed on human flesh and blood. Comes on a split trace chain, 22" (55cm) overall length plus a 1 1/2" extender chain. This necklace was previously made with a purple Swarovski crystal but is now only available in black. Width 3.6" x Height 4.9". Made of lead-free fine English pewter exclusively by Alchemy Gothic.
