It was also believed to confer ability, success, divine favor, ancient wisdom and cure sore throats. No wonder it was as valuable as gold!. Mined in Afghanistan for over 7,000 years, the “Armenian Stone” is an enduring rock – and yes it is a rock – unlike other gems it is a composite of several materials with sparkling flecks of pyrite, or fool’s gold, adding to its mystical allure.
