The Big Dipper asterism, also called the Plough or the Saptarishi, is so easy to recognize that it is almost universally known in every Northern Hemisphere culture. Even young children can spot it, and so it is frequently the first thing in the night sky that young aspiring amateur astronomers learn to point out. The stars in the Big Dipper are also handy in finding Polaris, Spica, and other important celestial objects. This 1" diameter solid black stone onyx pendant is engraved with the stars in the Big Dipper, as well as several neighboring stars. It is hung from and adjustable black leather cord.
