It was a mineral in the breastplate of the High Priest. Eastern mythology emphasize that a carbuncle was pendant worn by Noah, in the Ark, to disperse light. The Greeks called the carbuncle the Lamp Stone and it was said, if suspended from around the neck, to give the command of seeing in the dark.
These Garnets served as a talisman in the Crusades for both the Christians and their Muslim enemies and were also recognized as a Warrior Stone. The Merovingian’s brought these garnets from faraway Ceylon (Sri Lanka) through the Silk Road, combining it with yellowish-brown stone also known as amber from the Baltic to create magnificent jewels.
