In previous articles I described the Pentacle in detail. Basally the Pentacle is a common shape in nature which was replicated in art and Symbology for centuries. In early art it gained significance and represented balance, strength, endurance and that which is sacred to people everywhere. Only in the recent century has it been tarnished by those who do not understand Symbology and it is mistaken for other things.
Small Pentacle with Moon Stone.
In celebration of this beautiful shape, I have made several interpretations of this star, some extremely ornate. In this version I have created the Pentacle in it’s most basic shape: a woven five pointed star set into a circle. In the center I have placed a moon stone, a mineral which seems to be solidified moon light: the Romans and Greeks associated Moonstone with their lunar gods and goddesses.
This tiny Pentacle with Moon Stone is sleek and sturdy for years of wear. The moon stone is set in a bezel setting for comfort and security. To learn more about this amulet, lease visit my web page featuring the Small Pentacle with Moon Stone.
If you cannot find the Pentacle you are looking for, have no fear. I can create your design by way of your drawings or description. More information may be found at Amulets by Merlin Custom Page.
Pentacles often had no connotation of “five” in the old magical documents,
but were magical talismans inscribed with any symbol or character.
The most common “pentacle” is the five point star.
In one of it’s earliest forms the Pentacle symbolized the first “ADAM”,
signified in early art as “Human Perfection”,
the “First Man” in the Garden of Eden.

Pentacles are used in the Tarot
to signify Matter or the Material World.
Each of the Pentacle cards represents a scenario and lesson about money,
influence and decisions.
The five pointed star is found everywhere
from a Sheriff’s badge to a countries’ flag;
it is found in nature within apples,
in flowers and trees.
The Pentacle as a five pointed star
represents the balance between the Elements
(Fire, Water, Air, Earth)
under the Spirit
(the top point).
When presented with the top point up,
this is a symbol of health, wisdom,
balance and good fortune.
like any symbol reversed
it is no longer in balance but rather oppressed:
the elements are over powering the spirit.
When both are shown together
it represents the cycle of life:
the “ups and downs” of one’s existence.
Because I have been creating amulets of many sorts,
I have dedicated my own collection of Pentacles
as five pointed stars
and left the rest to be listed under other categories.
Each of my pentacle amulets are focused on a different aspect of health:
brotherhood, environment, healing, friendship and love.
With over 20 designs to choose from
I have versions that include rough textures,
moonstone, caldrons, a pin design for wiccan clergy in the military and much more.
If you cannot find the Pentacle you are looking for,
