Symbolic

 

The water lily

 

The water lily symbolizes the first appearance of life on the neutral immensity of the primordial waters (CHGH) Opening their corolla at dawn and closing it at night, it represents the cycle of life and rebirth (POSE) In the Mayan glyptic , it is a symbol of abundance and fertility.

 

Lapis-Lazuli

 

Lapis Lazuli represents among the Sumerians the celestial vault. It was for them the "stone of stones", a stone they worshiped. This gem is also "a cosmic symbol of the starry night" in pre-Columbian America (CHGH)

Its particular color "creates an aura of tenderness and sympathy around its owner" (FLAM)

 

Amber

 

Among the Etruscans, Amber symbolizes the cosmic link. This gem testified, in the eyes of these people, of the existence of a life after death (PARK). Amber represented the psychic thread connecting individual energy to cosmic energy, the link between the individual soul and the universal soul (CHGH)

 

Agate

 

According to an 11th century manuscript owned by the British Museum, agate gives strength through the water it touches and drinks. We find in different cultures the fact that water having been in contact with agate has medicinal properties

 

Old Beliefs

 

If you find a Lapis Lazuli in a dream, a situation will turn to your advantage (DERR, CANS)

If in a dream you are arguing with a third person about a lapis lazuli, you should not sign any contract lightly in the days following this dream (DERR, CANS)

Drink water in which nine pieces of agate have been soaked for three days to cure all diseases (AGAS)

To find out if an agate has magical virtues, you must throw it into boiling water: if it cools the water, you can trust it (CANS)
