Description
The cross is one of the simplest and most profound symbols in the world. To the Christian it is immediately identified with resurrection, eternal life and redemption. The cross, as an object worn by the pious, has also become identified with the Byzantine style, with its distinctice curved ends and solid form. This handsome cross incorporates a design similar to the fleur-de-lis on the ends of the eight points. The center contains a distinctive and very effective group of circles radiating outwards like waves of energy. Immediately, the eye is pulled into the center of the circles as if to the heart of creation, or the sacred heart of Christ. Whoever next wears this cross will undoubtedly feel this energy, waiting for hundreds of years to be set free again. - (FJ.6296)
