Cristina's medallion is a golden religious Shadowhunter pendant worn by Cristina to symbolize her faith in the Angel Raziel. The medallion is consecrated to Raziel, denoting the wearer's belief that the Angel was a living presence as opposed to a distant figure.
An image of Raziel is etched on the front, and a line on the back says, in Latin: "Blessed be the Angel my strength which teaches my hands to war, and my fingers to fight."
The medallion is a family heirloom carried down through generations, gifted to the Rosales family by the hadas, the faeries. It is a faerie charm, of which the family has many as they were close with Fair Folk.
Cristina often looks to the medallion for support, touching it when she needs luck, bravery, or strength, or when she feels nervous.
In addition to providing comfort, the medallion also protects the wearer from the time differences between the mortal and faerie lands; the protection may also be extended to others if they stay close to the wearer of the medallion. It also allows non-faeries to take the moon's road into Faerieland, something which only those with faerie blood can do.
- The Latin words on its back were derived from the Bible, reworded to fit Shadowhunter religion.
