Primarily, the Indalo is the symbol of Almería in Andalucía, southern Spain. But, it is also believed to be an extremely powerful good luck symbol . . recognised in many places in the world.
Like other good luck symbols, the Indalo is used as a lucky charm, amulet or talisman on a multidue of jewellery pieces . . and especially in Spain – being part of the history and culture of Almería, Andalucía. Indalo pendants of gold, silver and non-precious metals abound along the Spanish ‘levante’ coastline, along with other items of jewellery and ceramics, etc featuring this so-called good luck symbol.
In the old Iberian language, Indal Eccius (a phrase commonly believed to be the origin of the word ‘ Indalo ‘ – and related to Saint Indalecio, a 1st Centruy Saint sent to evangalise Roman Iberia) means ‘ Messenger of the Gods ‘ and the little Indalo charm is considered a guardian angel (a bit like a St. Christopher or St James Cross worn by many on the Camino de Santiago) throughout much of eastern Mediterranean Spain – offering protection from harm (and strangely, from flood as well, in this the dryest part of Europe).
Not only is the Indalo a symbol of good luck and protection, but it is also believed to represent Man’s ethereal connection with the spirits and the universe:
Overall, the Indalo is a great symbol of inspiration – a symbol with a story – that makes a great piece of inspirational jewellery – jewellery with REAL meaning.
