#2 in a series of Gemstone Meditation Cards with mythological figures by Karadin,
Sapphire features a winged celestial being, holding a cup carved from a single large gemstone, displaying the name ‘Virtus’. (which embodies courage, loyalty and goodness)
The angel holds a crown of laurel leaves made of hammered gold, a symbol of great achievement in art and in learning, and stands for Wisdom. These wreaths were also bestowed upon warriors, with a modern interpretation of overcoming obstacles.
The Sapphire gemstone signifies hope and healing. It is also the birthstone of September.
