A little history… Believed to embolden its wearer and remove stress, Rock Crystal was given its name by ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus – derived from the Greek ‘crystallos’. The ancient Greeks believed that Gods drank ambrosia and nectar from Crystal goblets, while the Romans used Rock Crystal for making jewellery. The Romans interestingly prized pearls more than diamonds. Coveted by the nobility ‘gems of the sea’ became Rome’s must-have extravagance in the 1st century B.C.
