An ancient constellation of the zodiac and one of the only that resembles its namesake. The twins of Gemini, Castor and Pollux, were sons of Zeus and the mortal woman Leda. They were brothers of Helen of Troy. The twins were said to spend all their time together, and were part of the crew of the Argo with Jason when he attempted to retrieve the Golden Fleece. The twins were considered protectors of sailors. The constellation is composed of bright stars and easy to find. It is located northeast of Orion.

  5. Such a wonderful entry, a lot of work went into this one, I think...

    ancient Greek Mythology : "The twins of Gemini, Castor and Pollux, were sons of Zeus and the mortal woman Leda. They were brothers of Helen of Troy."

    1. Thank You Marianne. I had fun and had to go through my old jewellery boxes to find the little Gemini pendant which is very old as you may have noticed.
      It is amazing what you find, and can't find, when you go through old jewellery boxes and I must confess to having collecting quite a few over the years.
