Thor's Hammer or Mjolnir - Norse Amulet - Solid Pewter
Thor's Hammer or Mjolnir - Norse Amulet - Solid Pewter

RJ450 - Thor's Hammer or Mjolnir - Norse Amulet - Solid Pewter. Draped by a black cord. Norse Amulet - Those who worshiped the god Thor often wore pendants in the shape of his hammer which in fact had a name which was Mjolnir. Widely popular in Scandinavia, they were used in Blóts and other sacral ceremonies, such as weddings. Mjolnir simply means "crusher," referring to its pulverizing effect. It has been suggested that although the name reflects Mjolnir's awesome powers it might also allude to Thor's agricultural nature, as he was primarily worshiped by farmers.
