Cross of Jesus

The most valuable symbolic jewel in the world.

Located in the centre of the cross is the most symbolic valuable jewel in the world. It is known by the following names:

Eloha or Elohim (Hebrew: God), Hyacinth, Almandine, Carbuncle, Garnet (after the city of Granada), Ruby of the Alps, Ruby.

The three monotheistic world religions stemming from the Old Testament were established: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

From an unknown source, people already knew during the time of Moses that the earth's crust consists of 90 % of this material and therefore this type of jewel was produced through a metamorphic transformation to perfection from  this substance.

For this reason the founders of the world religions - Moses, Jesus and Mohammed saw this jewel as the highest symbolic intermediary on our earth between God and mankind and passed it on in different traditions to the human race. In Mecca - the native town of Mohammed - one can find such a ruby. This is also the reason why each Moslem is encouraged go to Mecca during his lifetime, in order to touch this stone. During Christianity, the later Archbishop of Mainz - Hrabanus Maurus - dated this stone in the middle of the cross at around 760 A.D. -as a reference to Christ himself and to symbolize the triumphant procession of Christianity. The Archbishop also gave the stone the name Ruby (Latin: ruber) which also became the name patron of the colour red. There is also the connection to the blood aspect in the Eucharist (the holy mass) in reference to "Jesus has sweated blood for you".
