In the mystical winter landscapes of Iceland, the fascinating story of the Jólasveinar has been told for centuries - the YULE LADS who live in the mountains with their scary
parents Grýla and Leppalúði.

This band of rogues is just as unique as terrifying. But their intentions are by no means evil - rather, they bring a mixture of practical jokes and the grotesque to the festive season.

Between December 12th and 24th, they set off into the villages one after the other . They sneak into people's houses and play pranks on people, steal food or annoy livestock. Each Jólasvein has his own personality and quirks that excite the residents. The list of their pranks is as bizarre as it is entertaining. And they always manage to put a smile on people's faces during this frosty season. On January 6th the last of them stops annoying the people and returns to the mountains to join the others. Despite their scary origins, the Jólasveinar have become endearing symbols in modern Icelandic culture. They embody the spirit of winter, the magic of the holidays and the joy of celebrating together.

In the “Jólasveinar” bracelet, Red Jasper embodies the 13 Jule Lads Jólasveinar. This gemstone not only symbolizes individuality, unique charm and mischievous energy, but it also gives strength and endurance.

Magnesite represents Mother Grýla, and rather embodies qualities that she needs and the gemstone conveys : Calming and relaxation, promoting love, compassion and balance.

Father Leppalúði is embodied by Lava and stands for strength and stability, connection to the earth and the contrast between destruction and creation, which is what lava is all about .

Description of the gems

Symbolas Pferde-Welten


The inner fire, what you "burn" for, becomes visible with Lava. This determination and connection helps turn ideas into action. It also gives stamina and attraction. The lava stone bestows the wearer the power to become visible and get going, gives zest for action, determination and energy, supports new beginnings, goal achievement and life plans. The lava gem used is porous and can therefore also serve as an aroma carrier for perfumes or scented oils, which it absorbs well and releases over a longer period of time.
