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.
Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love. It restores trust and harmony in relationships, encouraging unconditional love. Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace.
