This inverted crescent shaped pendant is called Naja by the Navajo Native American Indians. It was handcrafted with sterling silver and a Lapis Lazuli stone in the center. The Naja is held in very high esteem by the Navajo as well as other peoples. You are going to love the look of this
authentic southwestern symbol!
The Naja symbol, often found on squash blossom necklaces, was used in traditional Navajo jewelry as protection against evil, as decoration, and a sign of wealth & power. This ancient design has origins dating back to the Moors, Romans and Greeks. Some say it was introduced to the Native Americans by the Spanish invaders. Some say the Plains Indians are the first to use it for jewelry.
