“La Soñadora” a song written by Enya in 1995 was inspired by “The Song of Amergin”. According to legend, Amergin was one of the leaders of the Men of Míl who battled the Faery Clan for possession of Ireland. Amergin invoked the powers of the Land upon first stepping ashore. He joined himself with the spirit that controlled the elements of the Cosmos. The wind died down and the Gaels claimed sovereignty on Ireland. There are many versions of “The Song of Amergin”, but Enya lyrics are:
I; the autumn
I; the evening star
I have been an echo
I shall be a wave
I shall be the moon
I have been everything, I am myself
I; the summer
I; the ebony
I am the dreamer
In Irish Mythology there is often mention of another character the Druid. The Druid was a man of knowledge and power, and he held his knowledge in dreams and signs an interpretation.
The Druid knew the lie of lands and the way of the winds. He understood the elements. His was the knowledge of words. One Druid, in particular, inspired the seed to this lyric: Amergin, who came from the shores of Iberia, modern-day Spain, with the Son of Mil.
And so the Dreamer always dreams.
Curated Assembling Related To This Perspective
As you very well have imagined for this proposal we have chosen rare gems, considered more valuable than diamonds, rubies, and sapphires but practically unknown by the public.
We are always looking for meaning in nature and our acts. Dreamers are very rare gems, the ones that independently of the circumstances hold hope are very rare gems, as rare as these beautiful gems that we are going to introduce you.
We hope that you will enjoy the selection.
The following gems are:
Musgravite was discovered in 1967 and is arguably the rarest gemstone in the world. It was first discovered in Musgrave Ranges, Australia, and later found in Madagascar and Greenland.
Taaffeite is a rare gemstone that most people have never heard of due in large part to how rare it is. The light violet gemstone was discovered in 1945 by Australian gemologist Richard Taaffe.
Demantoid is a remarkable green variety of andradite garnet that was discovered in the mid-1800s in Russia. Though other types of warm-toned garnet are considered common and inexpensive, demantoid garnet is among the rarest and most valuable from that gem family. You will have a hard time finding a demantoid garnet larger than 2 carats since most crystals are smaller in size.
Smaller varieties of alexandrite have been mined in Sri Lanka, Brazil, and Asia, but fine alexandrite specimens are still very rare and costly. If you've uncovered an heirloom alexandrite gem that is large in scale and has excellent clarity, you're likely dealing with a synthetic. These stones are often blue and purple vs. green and red and are actually synthetic corundum. The average price per carat can be $12,000 per carat.
Stone Black Opal
Black opal is the rarest and most popular type of opal. It is also considered among the rarest of all gemstones. Almost all the world's supply of black opal is mined in Lightning Ridge in New South Wales, Australia.
Musgravite was discovered in 1967 and is arguably the rarest gemstone in the world. It was first discovered in Musgrave Ranges, Australia, and later found in Madagascar and Greenland. The first sizable gem-quality specimen was discovered in 1993. As far as gem-quality stones, there are about ten specimens known and documented.
Stone Red Beryl
Red Beryl is an extremely rare variety of beryl that has only been found in Utah and New Mexico. It was first discovered by Maynard Bixby in 1904. Despite being found in two locales, gem-quality red beryl has only been mined in Utah. Coined by some as the red emerald, this rare gem is very difficult to find due to the unique conditions required for this stone to form.
Ines Arenas Jewelry Gallery Says Thank You…
…for staying with us through the article: “La Soñadora”. (The Dreamer).
For us, jewelry is an art form where others might think that jewelry becomes art through how it is presented.
But we believe that is the mixture between presentation and content that makes jewelry an art form. One doesn’t happen without the other.
Jewelry is a representation of our history and beliefs in symbols that have changed with the time to express our personal beliefs regarding politics, sexuality, religion, family, and even social status, since the Roman Empire in western civilization.
Jewelry, thanks to the internet, is going to become a language, a vocabulary, a way to talk, understood around the world because any art is about connection including Jewelry.
This is Why We Present Jewelry As We Do It!
But You, “The viewer is the last stroke in any jewelry piece”.
