The piece above was given to me by Adam, a friend that I have the joined the Marines right after high school. After doing several brief tours in several different countries, he was stationed in Japan. While on tour in Japan, he explored the culture and really like it. He was so enthralled by their art that he decided that I should have some. He bought the piece you see above from an art museum in Tokyo, and mailed it to me.

When I received the piece, it was like, whatever, and I couldn’t really understand why Adam had been so enchanted by it. I mean, the piece was pretty and I enjoyed it because it was a gift from Adam, but it was peculiar and it wasn’t something that I would typically own. Next time I got a chance to actually speak with Adam, via Skype, he inquired as to whether or not I had been able to use the gift he had sent me. I had informed him that I hadn’t really used it, but I had it on display in a jewelry box that I owned that was on my dresser. He laughed, which stirred my interest. I pressed the issue and got the truth out of him. The piece was indeed from an art museum in Tokyo, but not just any art museum. This particular item had come from a museum of magic arts... and my job was to figure out what it was that was so magical about the item he had bought me. Turns out, that the man who sold him the piece was a Japanese sorcerer, telling Adam that the piece will act in a way as to reflect the beholders true destiny. Knowing that I enjoy magic and a good mystery, Adam had scarfed up the piece, and sent it to me as soon as he could. Now it began to make sense.

After taking the piece with me to several mediums, nobody was able to help me determine the meaning of the ornament. Finally, at my whit’s end, I took the piece to DeeDee, who then helped me decipher the message behind the piece. Actually, there was no message, per se, but the piece does inhabit a Ningyo. The story behind the Ningyo is as follows. It is a mystical sea creature with the mouth of a monkey, shining golden scales, and a voice that resembles that of a flute-- all this with the face of human. They are goddesses of the sea, in existence to protect and rule over all sea creatures.

I really have no desire for this creature, as I’m not a fan of water, so I am going to pass this one onto you. If you possess this piece you will be given the utmost beauty and youthfulness displayed by the ningyo, whose name is Sokawi. You will given hydrokinetic power, giving you dominion over all powers of the sea and all that is aquatic. You will be given the ability of supertransposition by letting the ningyo infuse with your own spirits. Upon doing this, you will exhibit all of the powers and abilities of the ningyo you will be getting.

This is all real Amethyst and the ball holds the Ningyo
