This rich red gem depicts Aequitas, the Goddess Of Fair Dealing And Justice. She holds a cornucopia, the horn of plenty, in one hand, and a balance in the other. A metaphor for success and prosperity through fairness, this gem may once have been worn by a wealthy businessman, or perhaps a magistrate or lawyer, at the height of the Roman Empire. Though much has changed since this gem was carved, the idea it represents is relevant for all time. Aequitas is a goddess at whose shrine mankind should always continue to worship. - (FJ.0434)
