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! :)
***JASPER is an ancient stone that has been used by many cultures for different uses. Traditional Jasper is a very warm and nourishing stone no matter what color you find it in. It is very earthy.
***PYRITE comes from the Greek word meaning "a stone which strikes fire”. The resemblance of pyrite to gold has made it a traditional symbol for money and good luck. Its sunny golden color associates it with the sun, and with fortification and strengthening of the mind.
***CORAL was once thought to be a plant and 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 and enables the wearer to enjoy life.
