Celtic Birth Charms: 14 - Samhain
The Celts settled in Europe from 800 B.C. to 900 A.D. and their civilization has been based on the belief in a magically animated earth and its relation to the own clan or tribe. In regard to this they were early conservationists, because they strongly believed that every part of the scenery holds its own life and should be considered as holy.
Birthdays had a very important meaning because many Celtic legends referred to the birth of deities and heroes and the Celts were convinced that they shared the supernatural powers of these mythological beings if they had the luck to be born on their birthday. The cycle of agriculture was vital for their culture too and the festivals which were celebrated during the year were especially important to those who were born shortly before a certain festive day because they took a leading role in this particular festival. In their magic system the darkness of night brought the Celts closer to the mysterious Otherworld, where gods, goddesses, fairies and the dead exist. The natural attributes being inherent in a certain season, were respected by the Celts just as much as they observed which plants, animals and weather conditions were connected with a certain period because in that way they defined the special abilities of newborn children and predicted the future.
Magic birth pendants were worn by the Celts to influence destiny and to emphasize personal traits, just as astrological jewelry is used by a lot of people today. And that's why the Celtic birth charms of this collection can either be worn to stress your own Celtic birthday, or if another pendant is chosen, to manifest its spirit within you.
Samhain: People whose birthday falls between the 25th of October and the 16th of November are born under the Celtic sign of Samhain, the time of the ghosts. The Samhain night was full of supernatural magic and the ghosts of the ancestors could haunt the people. People born under the sign of Samhain often have an unusual inner strength and a special relation to supernatural entities. The Samhain festival was dedicated to the Raven Goddess Morrigan and still lives on today in the old custom of Halloween, originally the Celts celebrated during this period, more precisely at the 31st of October, New Year's Day.

Here you find many pieces of jewelry that not only were manufactured according to historical and magical artwork but where you can also select the gemstone that is to be set into the piece. Many people are convinced that minerals and precious stones with their vibrational energies exert a positive effect on body, mind and spirit. This way a piece of jewelry where you personally select your gemstone can have a balancing and harmonizing power.
Already 1000 years ago gems and crystal were appreciated in Asia and especially in China because of their various powers. The Chinese art of healing primarily used jade and according to old legends pearls made of this gemstone have inspired the Chinese writing. The value of jade was judged that high that sometimes Chinese emperors were buried in an armor made of jade and green gems in general were thought to bestow luck upon their wearer. The gemstones were used alone (as tumbled stones or raw minerals) or were set into pieces of jewelry, sometimes also decorative items made of these precious stones were put up in the room.
It is often suggested to use minerals and precious stones near to one's body so that their vibrational energies can exert an intense influence on us. Therefore jewelry that is set with gemstones is especially handy: It not only is visually appealing but usually will be worn directly on the skin or at least on the clothes. According to old belief this way an energetic imbalance of the body can be harmonized and body, mind and spirit are balanced - many people also appreciate the balancing and calming effect of "their" own very personal gemstones.
Amongst others the precious stones citrine, rock crystal, black tourmaline, carnelian and onyx are used often and are also popular as stones to be set in pendants and necklaces. Citrine symbolizes individuality, self-assurance and optimism, while rock crystal stands for clarity of feelings and during problems in daily life. Black tourmaline symbolizes the defence against feelings like mistrust, envy and jealousy and carnelian stands for shared activities and for helpfulness, while black onyx symbolizes energy, self-assurance and strength.

The energetic effect of minerals and gemstones is deemed to be unproven by modern science and therefore it is often said that the positive effects of gem jewelry are only based on the imagination of its wearer. Although it is true that most of the effects that are traditionally passed down for the various gemstones are not scientifically validated there are energetic effects of crystals that are undisputed: For example gemstones exist that can store energy and release it in the dark or if one rubs over their surface. Therefore many remains to be discovered and personally experienced about minerals and gems and therefore we decided to offer a broad range of pieces of jewelry where our customers can choose the gemstone to be set in: This way everybody can find his jewelry with his personal favourite stone and experience what the world of gemstones and minerals has to offer.
