This soulful stone is known in Ancient Greek to mean the “nail” or “claw”. According to Greek mythology, Cupid used one of his arrows to cut the fingernails of his mother Venus. When the nails fell from Mount Olympus into the Indus River they transformed into Onyx.
The figa or “mano fico,” is known to be a symbol of good fortune dating back centuries. It is said to ward off the evil eye, jealousy and negative energies -- bringing protection and strength to the wearer. Amulets with this symbol are often worn as a good luck charm.
The figa hand measures one inch in height. The double sided skull measures .25" x .40".
The hand carved onyx talisman measures 1.75" in height and has a width at the top of approximately .40".
