Dictionary Terms Explained
- Supernatural, mysticism
Pegasus is a mighty horse with wings that had the power to fly. Tales of the exploits of Pegasus originate from Greek mythology whereby Pegasus was a supernatural animal: a shining white horse with wings. This good-natured, loyal and obedient creature would follow orders whether they were for good or for evil. Zeus punished him for this and used Pegasus to carry his thunderbolts.
Legend has it that Pegasus was created from drops of blood shed when Perseus cut off Medusa's head. Bellerophon then captured and tamed Pegasus, and the goddess Athena provided him with a golden bridle. Bellerophon and Pegasus took to the skies together and managed to slaughter the fire-breathing monster, Chimera. Their partnership ended, however, when Bellerophon tried to ascend to heaven on the horse to join the gods, but was thrown off. Pegasus continued his journey upwards and became the constellation of the same name.
The symbol of Pegasus lives on in mythical tales and beliefs today, with many using it to herald their desire to be more mystical, or welcome mysticism into their lives.
Peter Stone Jewellery
- High quality jewellery manufacturer
The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
