In Norse mythology, the hammer belonged to Thor, the Norse God of thunder. The Elder Futhark runes on the pendant read MJOLNIR, (mo-yol-nir) the name of Thor's hammer, from right to left. Mjolnir is commonly thought to mean "That which smashes". Wearing Thor's Hammer is an expression of strength and determination.
