Ursa Major (Ursae Majoris) is a constellation visible throughout the year in most of the northern hemisphere.

Its name means the Great Bear in Latin and is widely recognized as the Big Dipper.

Our version has clearly defined stars in the shape of the Dipper. An opalescent pearl fume and foil are applied to add interest to the design which is ground, cut and polished providing a window to the cosmos.

the Big Dipper has mythological significance in numerous world cultures.

The Iroquois Native American interpretation has three hunters pursuing the Great Bear.

According to one version of their myth, the first hunter carries a bow and arrow. The second hunter carries a large pot on his shoulder, to cook the bear, while the third hunter hauls a pile of firewood to light a fire beneath the pot.
