Their corresponding virtues
January 19th 2019
Artists who painted angels, archangels and divinities, often depicted them in magnificent clothes and adorned with gold and precious stones. They intuitively knew there was a correspondence between spiritual wealth and material wealth. The tradition of sacerdotal vestments adorned with precious stones, still present to this day, has the same meaning: an officiating priest's spiritual wealth must be shown by the external wealth of their clothing. And if you too wear jewellery adorned with precious stones, know that you must also possess these stones within you: sapphires symbolize peace; rubies, love; amethysts, sacrifice; the topaz, wisdom; emeralds, hope; diamonds, strength of spirit. There is endless wealth in the symbolism of precious stones and their full power is yet unknown.
