The tree of life, like its Norse counterpart, represents man. The branches symbolise the cosmos, the roots the underworld and the tree their union in mankind. In Catholicism the tree of life repesents immaculate man, free from corruption and Original Sin before the fall.
Amethyst Irish Jewellers have incorporated this iconic symbol into their collection of fine pewter jewellery. An additional detail is a Trinity Knot nestled under the roots of the tree adding another mystical dimension to this beautiful pendant.
