Hessonite Garnet & Lapis Twilight Necklace

This pendant combines two of the great stones, Garnet and Lapis Lazuli. Both stones are well known and used by ancient cultures. In the middle ages, painters ground up lapis lazuli to make the deep blue paint called ultramarine--the blue used to paint the robes of Mary of Nazareth on church walls and ceilings like in the Sistine Chapel. Garnets were used for beads and jewelry in ancient Egypt over 5,000 years ago. In ancient times, the garnet was used as a talisman and was a prized jewel. Garnet symbolizes passionate devotion, friendship, vitality, balance, purification and love. And Lapis has been associated with strength and courage, royalty and wisdom, intellect and truth.
