    As expert navigators, the constellations signified mystery and power to Vikings. The Moon was personified as Mani, brother to Sol the Sun, and is abundantly represented in Norse literature. Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belts, other clothing and horse harnesses. This example is wide and fashioned as the crescent moon tapered from the middle and in the rolled or roped form favored by Vikings and used extensively for Viking warrior rings.
