The Yin Yang is a well-known Chinese symbol, and it's an important part of Chinese philosophy. It is a Chinese theory on the perspective of continuous change and balance. The theory is that all things in the universe have an opposing force, and though they are opposing, they are very interconnected. These forces are represented in the yin yang symbol with black and white. The black symbolizing the Yin energy, while the white symbolizes the Yang energy. Yin is the passive energy of silence, slow and relaxed movements, and deep darkness, and is the predominant energy of sleep, resting, relaxing and replenishing. Yang is the active energy and is symbolized by bright lights, strong sounds and bright colours.
Fildisi is popular in the Mediterranean, and is known for its colour – a shiny ivory shell-like stone that glistens pearly white rays. Fildisi reminds one of the sea and is depicted as the stone of the sirens in Greece. Sirens were beautiful young maidens, creatures of the sea that used their feminine beauty to attract traveling sailors who plummeted to their death, blinded by the alluring mermaids. These maidens were known to wear Fildisi, for its pearly white surface changes in the light, blinding the travellers of the Mediterranean.
