In most Japanese cultures, koi represent a material and spiritual abundance or advancement. Koi fish are always at ease in the water, flowing as the tide runs deep under water.
Feng shui, a spiritual form of organization and placement of objects, says that having the spirit of the koi near you will attract good luck, fortune, and spiritual benefits.
Each koi has a particular significance in Japanese culture based on its color:
Gold Koi: Wealth, prosperity, growth.
Kohaku: This common color pairing, red and white, represent career success. It can also mean love and compassion.
Ogon ( metallic, solid-colored koi): The platinum koi signifies business success and material wealth in career.
Ochiba (means “autumn leaves on water"): This unique blue and yellow koi represents the change of seasons and transition.
Butterfly koi: This flowing koi signals elegance, beauty, and harmony.
Fun Fact: Koi scrubs are often worn by nurses to achieve a sense of balance in the sometimes chaotic hospital environment.
If you are using the Cloisonne Trinket Box to burn incense cones, be sure to monitor it as each lamp is made unique. Do not close the lid/top as the item may get to hot. Use a cone burner plate under the cone. HEM Cones come with a circle cone burner plate in each box.
Never leave burning incense unattended.
