The ‘ciurunji’ is named after the God given wife of Mwenendega. Here is the story;

According to the Embu ancestral origin mythology, the Embu have been on their land since the beginning of time.

Embu mythology claims that the Embu people originated from ‘Mbue Njeru‘ in the interior of Embu, close to Runyenjes town. The mythology claims that ‘Mwene Njeru’ (God) created Mwenendega and gave him a beautiful wife by the famous Mbui Njeru waterfall—hence her name “Ciurunji.”

The couple was blessed with wealth, and their descendants populated the rest of Embu.

Silver represents aging gracefully; The phrase ‘silver-haired’ traditionally means a distinguished person who’s aging gracefully.

Silver represents a mirror to souls; Some people believe that the color silver is the mirror to one’s soul, helping people to view themselves in the same way that as they are seen by others.

Silver symbolizes strength; Silver is symbolic of subtle strength and stability since it’s associated with the precious metal. The metal silver although malleable, can be made to be strong when combined with other metals.

Silver also signifies cunning;  When we say someone has a ‘silver tongue’, it means that the person can speak in such a way to make others believe or do whatever he or she wants.

Silver is associated with healing. Since the metal silver is said to have antimicrobial properties, it has a strong association with healing and purity. Silver colored objects are generally perceived as being much cleaner than objects made of different materials.

Referred to as the metal of emotions, healing and love, silver jewelry is not only believed to bring the wearer patience and perseverance but also provide balance and protection.

Silver is known to carry the energies of the moon, especially during new moons and full moons. As Silver is reflective, the moon reflects light coming from the sun, and it does the same for whoever wears it.

Silver will also absorb and radiate the same energies which the stone is set in.
