The acorn is the fruit of the mighty oak tree.
Pewter pocket acorn charms are powerful good luck charms.
The Vikings associated the oak tree with Thor. Because the oak tree attracted lighting, it was sacred to Thor, and the fruit of the oak was believed to be spared by the god's wrath. So Vikings started putting an acorn in their window to spare their houses from lightning's wrath. During the Norman Conquest, the English carried dried acorns to protect themselves from the brutalities of the day. Considered to be an emblem of luck, prosperity, youthfulness and power, the acorn is a good luck symbol indeed!
The acorn also represents spiritual growth.
Our pewter pocket acorns are made in America of solid pewter.
