These ancient symbols of earth, air, fire, and water are considered the 'classical' elements and have been utilized by various cultures and religions over thousands of years for a wide variety of concepts.
In astrology, these elements are associated with the twelve signs of the zodiac and are a critical part of interpreting the astrological chart.
The four elements are also strongly associated with the ancient Greeks, who used the elements to explain the complexity and nature of all matter in terms of these simpler substances.
Hinduism believes that all of creation, including the human body, is made up of these essential elements and that upon death, the human body dissolves into the elements of nature, thereby balancing the cycle of nature.
In early Buddhism, the four elements are a basis for understanding suffering and for liberating oneself from suffering.
And finally, in Wicca and in many other neo-pagan spiritual traditions, the elements are the fundamental building blocks of the universe and are responsible for the eternal cycle of destruction and new creation that is at the heart of all existence.
Features a solid sterling silver pendant and 20" sterling chain.
