The Breastplate of Aaron is of interest to crystal lovers because it is an early account of the use of crystals for both symbolic and decorative reasons. The Breastplate of Aaron, High Priest of the Hebrews, and brother of Moses, was of great importance because by means of it, God revealed his Divine will to His chosen people. It was designed by God Himself and the directions as to how it was to be made were given to Moses (as illustrated in Exodus 28.) The original association of a special gem with each month was recorded in the Bible (Exodus 28 and 39). The twelve gems in the breastplate were later linked with the Signs of the Zodiac and later still, associated with the months in the year. Upon the breastplate were set four rows of precious stones, three in each row, and upon them were engraved the names of the twelve tribes.
This beautiful set of gemstones come together in a clear box with a wonderful history of the stones and how you can use all 12 stones (approximately medium to large size, except for topaz and sapphire) to manifest positive love and change in your life.
