In Ancient times, the symbol was an incantation to the Goddess, invoking fertility. They were traditionally created with materials with close symbology of the Moon (Silver) or the Sea (Coral), with respect to the Lunar Goddess.
Silver Figas began to appear as fashionable charms, pendants, and jewelry in 17th Century South America, where even today, they are talismans worn to protect the wearer from the Evil Eye.
