This chime is named for the North Star, which marks Earth's celestial north pole. Part of three different constellations, Polaris is the end of the handle in The Little Dipper, part of Ursa Minor (the smaller bear), and it's the "jewel" in a semicircle of stars that make up a constellation called "The Engagement Ring." Because Polaris appears to be motionless, it is used in navigation and is associated with a steadfast nature.
This chime is designed and handcrafted for superior musical performance. It is hand-tuned to a universal, pentatonic (five-note) scale and acts in concert with the wind to create random patterns of wonderful sound. Harmonizes beautifully with all the other Encore Collection chimes.
