This pendant is a reproduction of a Viking age silver Thor’s hammer from Laby, Uppsala– Uppland, Sweden. It dates to the 10th century. Thor’s Hammer, called Mjolnir, was the primary weapon of the Viking God of Thunder. It was both a fearsome weapon and a ceremonial object. It played an important role in rituals and ceremonies and was used for blessing during birth, marriages, and funerals. It was a symbol of destructive power but also a symbol of healing, and protection and security from the evil and violent forces.
