INSPIRATION: The protective nature of the Hamsa Hand.
ABOUT THE STONES: Part of my fascination with jewelry making is the stones. What do they mean? Where did they come from? Below find the meaning of the stones of this particular piece. Please keep in mind that gemstones and semi-precious gemstones have many different meanings to many different cultures- these are just what I’ve found in my research! :)
***AGATE is THE stone everyone should have for protection. It attracts strength and has been said to protect the possessor from bad dreams. Different types of Agate stones were used in ancient Babylonia to make jewelry. Babylonians also placed them at the head of their bed-they thought agate brought good dreams! It is also known for it's power!
***OPALITE is known for it's soothing effect when held or worn!
***LAVA STONE is also know as Basalt. It is a stone of strength and courage. It also allows stability in one's life so if you are going through a lot of life shifts this stone is good for you! Because Basalt was actually once molten lava it has the power of fire! It can draw fire and energy into your life!
***CORAL was once thought to be a plant, coral has been called the "garden of the sea". The ancient Egyptians placed pieces of coral in tombs as a protection against evil spirits because they believed that each piece truly contained a drop of divine blood. Coral symbolizes joy and happiness, it enables the wearer to enjoy life.
*** HAMSA HAND is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It brings it's owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. It is also identified as the Hand of Miriam, Aaron and Moses’s sister, and the Hand of Fatima. The hamsa hand has a variety of meanings and interpretations, depending on the culture. The word, "hamsa," derives its name from the five fingers on the hand. In Hebrew, the number five is "hamesh" and the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is "Hey," one of God’s holy names. The hamsa hand protects its wearer from negative energy. It is often worn as a pendant on a necklace but also is found on key chains, house decorations, baby carriages, and other jewelry items.
