The disc of Phaistos, reproduced on this necklace, is classified by many as one of the most mysterious objects of all time. The original artifact is a stone carving that can be seen in the Heraklion museum in Crete. It remains an unsolved mystery. Over the twentieth century numerous archaeologists, linguists, anthropologists and even astronomers have provided their own theories for the disk's interpretation or intended function. Is the disk a very advanced form of an ancient calendar, or a cosmic map in which elements inside the carved spiral mark the position of stars in our galaxy?
