The medallion features a topographical map of the Transylvanian mountain range showing the location of Castle Dracula from Bram Stoker’s gothic horror classic, Dracula. A blood red stone marks the exact site of the castle as determined from Stoker’s notes for the novel: Mount Izvorul Călimanului, near the Borgo Pass. Stoker chose this location atop the barren caldera of an extinct volcano for a very particular reason—before it was edited for publication, Dracula originally ended with a volcano erupting and destroying the castle after the Count’s defeat: “From where we stood it seemed as if the one fierce volcano burst had satisfied the need of nature and that the castle and the structure of the hill had sunk again into the void.”
The back of the pendant is engraved with notes on the location - "Mount Izvorul Calimanului, located in the Transylvanian Kelemen Alps near the border of Moldavia, at 46 08' 03" North, 25 17' 19" East, 2,033 m high."
The Castle Dracula pendant is skillfully crafted in your choice of antiqued sterling silver, dark sterling silver, brass, antiqued yellow bronze, or dark bronze. Dark Silver and Dark Bronze plated with ruthenium, a surface treatment that will eventually wear away over time. How quickly a surface treatment will wear away is dependent on the daily wear and tear the item will be exposed to.
