Silver plated Lotus flowers hold amethyst and turquoise crystal drops and Lotus buds from black patina brass chain. Love and light. 💙 ✨Lotus Flower - The roots of a lotus flower extend into the mud and the stem grows up through the water and the flower blossoms above the surface. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment. Though there are other water plants that bloom above the water, it is only the lotus which, owing to the strength of its stem, regularly rises eight to twelve inches above the surface.
