Details

The “hamsa” amulet represents an open hand (the word “hamsa” means five). It is recognized as a sign of protection, and is believed to provide defense against the evil eye. Yet the hamsa is not a religious symbol - it is a popular one, found throughout the Mediterranean region and has been adopted by Muslims, Christians, and Jews alike. Roman era glass fragments are often found in archeological excavations in the Holy Land. The patina (the thin colorful layer on the glass surface) was created by chemical interaction with mineral rich soil over the course of 2000 years. To preserve the patina, avoid contact with water. Eilat stone is the name for a green-blue mixture of copper minerals such as malachite, turquoise, azurite, chrysocolla and others found in copper mines at Timna near Eilat. It is the national stone of Israel, also known as the stone of King Solomon.
