Beautifully engraved with the Pentacle symbol, these stainless steel tongs are intended to make using charcoal incense a little easier. You can use these tongs to pick up your lit charcoal for placement, rearrangement, or to hold while you ignite before setting it in your charcoal burner.
About the symbol:
The Pentacle is a symbol of a pentagram encased in a circle. The five points of the pentagram each carry its own meaning. The upward point of the star is representative of the element spirit. The other four points all represent an element; water, fire, earth, and air.
All these elements contribute to life and are a part of each of us. The circle around a pentagram contains and protects, giving the life a shell for protection of and against the elements.
The circle also is said to symbolize eternity and infinity, with no beginning and no end. These are the cycles of life and nature.
Each set of tongs measure approximately 5.75" long.
