Our vintage Carnelian heart amulet is nestled into a vintage setting and strung with vintage crosses and beads.
Before being accepted into the underworld, ancient Egyptians believed a judgment took place in front of Osiris. The heart was weighed against the feather of Maat, goddess of truth and justice. If it weighed the same as the feather, the bearer was named “ true of voice”, and granted eternal life. The heart, the only organ left in the body by the ancient Egyptian embalmers was often accompanied by small reddish heart shaped amulets.
