Pixiu have always been regarded as auspicious creatures that possessed mystical powers capable of drawing wealth from all directions. This silver Pixiu carries his very first offering to your wealth in his mouth: A silver coin!
In Chinese lore, Pixiu is the Dragon King’s ninth son, created with the head of a Chinese dragon, body of a lion and with a pair of feathered wings. He is a fierce protector, guarding the heavens against ghost and demons. He is equally fierce in guarding the person who seeks his protection by wearing his talisman.
This silver Pixiu charm measures approximately 20 mm long from coin to tail. That translates to approximately .75 inches and he weighs just over 2 grams. This piece is tested to confirm .925 silver content. It was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
