The seahorse spirit animal is a unique creature that’s always calm and collected as it navigates the seas. The seahorse symbolizes being patient and content with where you are in life. In Roman/ Greek mythology, Seahorses guide drowned sailors through the spiritual vortex until they reach their ordained fate in the afterlife. Spiritual seekers could interpret this as the seahorse monitoring dramatic change so we can navigate those tumultuous waters safely.
Emerald is the birthstone for May. It was known that Emerald was a favorite gem of Cleopatra and the Emerald mine in Upper Egypt was rediscovered a hundred years ago near the Red Sea. Shah Jahan, one of the moguls of India that built the Taj Mahal, loved Emeralds so much that he had sacred texts inscribed into them and used these gemstones as talismans. Today Emerald is thought of as a Seeker of Love and a Revealer of Truth, inspiring an ongoing search for meaning, justice, compassion and harmony. Called the “Stone of Successful Love,” Emerald opens and nurtures the heart and the Heart Chakra.
I am against taking seahorses from their natural habitat. I only buy from pet breeders (not to be mistaken for poachers) and I exclusively purchase captive bred seahorses that have passed away naturally. And only from breeders that I trust. I pay more for my seahorses to make sure that they were not killed. It's worth every penny. If you see inexpensive jewelry or art with real seahorses think twice. Just because someone says "I didn't kill this" doesn't mean the seahorse was not ripped from its natural habitat and then killed to be sold in masses for profit. Please question your sellers about where they get their raw materials. No trinket or artwork is worth the demise of a species. Please know that whether it is wearable art or sculpture I pour my heart into every detail as I honor these creatures.
