The cross well suited both for all Orthodox christians and for the adherents of the Greek Catholic Church*. The pendant carries numerous inscriptions in Church Slavonic: The acronym 'INЦI' ('INRI') represents 'Іисусъ Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій' (Latin 'Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum', English 'Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews') placed atop the cross as ordered by the Roman prefect of Judaea Pontius Pilate. The acronym IC XC ('Іисусъ Христосъ') is Russian for 'Jesus Christ'). The reverse of the cross features an embossed inscription that reads 'Спаси и Сохрани' (Russian for 'Protect and Save [me, oh my God]') to ward off the evil eye and dissolve negative energy.
