Mount Kailash

40.00

Location: Ngari area, near the border of China, Nepal and India        

Height: 6,638 m (21,778 ft)

The mountain is known as “Kailāsa” (कैलास) in Sanskrit and is possibly derived from the word “kelāsa” (केलास), which translates to "crystal". The Tibetan name for the mountain is Gangs Rin-po-che (གངས་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་). Gangs or Kang is the Tibetan word for snow peak; rinpoche is an honorific meaning "precious one". Together, the combined term can be translated into "precious jewel of snows".

In Hinduism, Shiva resided at the summit of a mountain named Kailāsa, where he sat in a state of meditation along with his wife Parvati.

The SIGIL Tibetan Quartz named after Mount Kailash has a clean, narrow and straight column that rounds at the termination point. The pendant is made entirely by hand by the designer, using epoxy putty and copper wire to create an organic, seamless base to showcase the one-of-a-kind mineral. The piece is strung on a 25” stainless steel chain with lobster claw opening.

Dimensions:

Length: 1 7/8 ” from top of ring to termination point of crystal

Width: 1/4”

Chain: 25” (hangs at approx. 12.5” when worn)

One of a kind; Unisex.
