The name of this stone fits this stone better. Red pebbles one to one, like pomegranate seeds. And before the stone was called carbuncle – ember, behind the red sparkles flashing in it.
This is my favorite stone. It attracts me like a magnet. Even in the jewelry store, my best friends are not honored with my attention – diamond jewelry. But over the windows with pomegranate, I hang for a long time. I get great pleasure from admiring the stones.
About the pomegranate folded many legends by different nations. And since ancient times magic powers have been attributed to him. Like, and doctors, and mystically affects the owner. Superstition, you say. But I so want to believe in them. Besides, they say: what you believe, it works.
In Asia, the pomegranate was sacred; people believed that it was petrified dragon blood. And according to the biblical tradition of grenades – it hardened fire, which lit the way to the ark of Noah during the flood. But the most beautiful stone legend was laid in Georgia.
A long time ago, a king decided to marry his daughter. He didn’t need any son-in-law, so he invented a terrible task for the suitors. In the hot desert at the edge of the world was a wonderful oasis garden. And his masters were evil spirits – the devas.
All the trees in that garden were magical, especially the pomegranate tree. Once a year, this tree bloomed and three fruits ripened on its branches. It was them who was supposed to bring the daughter’s fiance.
Many brave young men tried their luck, but only one could defeat all the misfortunes. When he returned home from a difficult campaign, the kingdom-state was ravaged by enemies, and the king was dying.
Then the young man broke one grenade – and the future test was on his feet. The second grenade saved the country from starvation and ruin. And from the third pomegranate spilled a lot of very precious precious stones – grains. They scattered all over the world and give to those who will find their happiness and prosperity.
It is believed that a stolen grenade will not bring anything good to a thief who stole a stone. If you buy a stone for yourself, then magical powers will appear in it after years. But a gift or inherited decoration with pomegranate is a talisman.
The most beautiful decoration – a ring with grenades gave me a husband. And, apparently, not without purpose. After all, it is believed that the stone not only inflames passion, but is a symbol of love and loyalty.
Pomegranate gives positive energy and strengthens will power. In ancient Persia, kings carried this stone because they believed that a grenade gives power over people, sense of purpose, self-esteem, clarifies thoughts.
In general, beautiful legends and red stone grains captivated me.
