Antiquity Ancient Egyptian Eye of Horus
Antiquity ancient Egyptian eye of Horus carved into obsidian set in 20k gold. 3.32cts Ethiopian opal, 0.06cts black diamonds, 0.04cts ruby, 0.88cts diamond, 0.16cts sapphire and 0.98cts emerald.
The symbol was used as a protective amulet and believed to have the power of healing power. According to Egyptian Mythology Horus lost his left eye in his war with Set who tore the eye into six pieces. Thoth, the god of wisdom and magic, was able to reassemble the eye and returned it to Horus. Horus gave the reassembled eye to his murdered father Osiris, thereby bringing him back to life. The symbol therefore represents the power of healing and was capable of bringing the dead to life, as it did with Osiris.
