Historically, the potion ingredient "eye of newt" is a reference to mustard seeds and not real amphibian eyeballs. Of course, the name still pops up on Halloween potion bottle labels because it sounds much more eerie than mustard seeds themselves!
This pendant features a flashy purple labradorite as body of the vial and is topped with a glass eye to fit the theme. The iris of the glass eye contains a mystical mixture of greens and purples. The backside has an etched label, which reads "Eye of Newt". The label warped a little when soldered on; as a result, the label looks more vintage and worn but still legible - perhaps it is a little more ancient? The silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The raised points have been polished to shine, while the low points retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. This pendant measures 2.5" tall and 1.25" wide at the widest point. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver

A few notes on caring for oxidized sterling silver: oxidized patina on sterling silver isn't particularly durable to long-term exposure to water (like bathing or swimming) or a lot of scrubbing, as friction is the way to polish silver to shine. Constant exposure to tasks such as hand washing, bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc., will slowly wear away the oxidized patina leaving a shiny silver finish.
