This coin edition honors the families of those who died much too young. The dark world is, of course, not inhabited by the dead, but by the people left behind, those who cannot see an end to their grief.

This coin is 2.5 inches in diameter (64 mm), which is huge and will fill your palm unlike any other geocoin. It features black borosilicate glass on a black nickel finish. This glass on metal technique, known as cloisonne, has been prized by artists for thousands of years due to its extreme durability and the fact that the colors will not fade. All other geocoin coloring methods will fade in sunlight or exposure to the air.
The 12 circles around the edge, on the tree side, represent the passage of time, such as the 12 hours on a clock or the twelve months in a year. The flowers all come from the holy land and are mentioned in the bible. They are, starting at the top and moving clockwise:
Rose of Sharon
Star of Bethlehem
