We all love the story of a treasurefound by chance and imagination.
In my culture, hidden treasures flicker on a magic night in the midst of summer. We call this night, The night of Sânziene. They are gracious fairies with magic powers. Also Sânziană is a flower called Lady’s Bedstraw.
Legend has it that on this night one can listen to animals talking with human voice and catch glimpses (if lucky) of the mysterious sheen of the unknown, unfathomable trove of treasures waiting impatiently to be found.
The treasure I am about to present here is not found but forged with toil, sweat, craft and the imagination of a treasure seeker. Swarovski crystals and amazing water-cherished pearls sparkle along with semi-precious stones like amethyst, citrine, opal, larimar, mother-of-pearl and what not…
Larimar, also called “Stefilia’s Stone”, is a rare blue variety of the silicate mineral pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.
