In ancient Roman mythology, Salacia was revered as the goddess of the sea, specifically associated with salt water and the depths of the ocean. She held a significant position as the consort of Neptune, the god of the sea. This relationship is suggested by Varro and supported by various sources including Seneca, Augustine, and Servius. Crystals and gemstones have long been associated with the concept of water and the energies it represents. The shimmering and translucent qualities of crystals often evoke the qualities of water, such as fluidity, clarity, and emotional depth.
