Nishikigoi: Japanese Koi Fish

The name, “Nishikigoi” was a term first used as far back as 200 years ago in a village from the Niigata prefecture in Japan.

The first Nishikigoi was produced by farmers breeding black carp (or Magoi) as a food source to survive severe winter weather conditions, the result born from this was a vibrantly coloured carp with an admirable figure that stood out from the rest with it’s rare beauty. As awareness grew, many started to appreciate Nishikigoi like a fine work of art.

Koi is a homophone for another word that means “affection” or “love” in Japanese; koi are symbols of love and friendship in Japan among many other symbols.

Chinese coins were once currency in ancient China, so it makes sense that they represent wealth and abundance. They are considered one of the Eight Treasures along with the pearl, lozenge, stone chime, rhinoceros’s horn, mirror, book, and leaf, which are all symbols of good fortune and prosperity.

Tourmaline aids in understanding oneself and others. It promotes self-confidence and diminishes fear. Tourmaline attracts inspiration, compassion, tolerance and prosperity. It balances the right-left sides of the brain.
