One story of the curse of Medusa.
Medusa was a beautiful maiden with golden hair. She vowed to be celibate her entire life as a priestess of Athena until she fell in love with Poseiden.
She went against her vow to Athena and married Poseidon.
For this Athena punished her hideously. She turned Medusa into an ugly creature by making her eyes bloodshot and raging and her face haglike. The once lovely hair was morphed into poisonous, dangerous snakes. Her pure white milky skin turned a scary green hue. From then on she roamed, shamed, shunned and loathed by everyone.
Thence, by Athena’s curse anyone she looked upon turned to stone.
Ruby Zoisite harnesses the energy of happiness, appreciation, abundance, vitality and growth. It is a powerful stone for deep healing.
