There are many legends about orchids. In China is very fond of this beautiful flower, and in many Latin American countries such as Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala and Panama orchid have become the national flower and logo. 
A beautiful legend about the orchids have been New Zealand's Maori tribe. They were confident in the divine origin of these colors. Long ago, long before the people, the only visible parts of the land was snow-capped peaks of high mountains. From time to time the sun melts the snow, causing thereby the rapid flow of water down from the mountains, forming a magnificent waterfall. Those, in turn, swirling foam swept toward the seas and oceans, and then evaporates, formed the curly clouds. These clouds eventually completely obscure the view from the sun to the earth. 
Once the sun wanted to pierce this opaque veil. Went to a strong tropical rain. After him was a large rainbow, embracing the whole sky. 
Admiring the unprecedented spectacle of immortal spirits - then the only inhabitants of the earth - have become fly to the rainbow with all of even the most remote edges. Everyone wanted to grab a spot on a colorful bridge. They jostled and quarreled. But then they were all seated on a rainbow and singing in unison. Little by little rainbow bend under their weight, until it finally crashed to the ground, scattering with a myriad number of small multi-colored sparks. 
Immortal spirits, hitherto not seen anything like it, watched with bated breath for fantastic colorful rain. Each piece of land with gratitude the fragments of the heavenly bridge. Those who were caught trees, orchids have become. 
Since then, and began a triumphal procession of orchids on the ground. Multi-colored lanterns became bigger and bigger, and has none dared to challenge the flower right orchid called the queen of the flower kingdom.

Орхидея олицетворяет великолепие, благосклонность и роскошь. В китайской символике это совершенный человек, гармония, изысканность, любовь, красота, женское обаяние, затворничество ученого. 
Орхидея также является китайским символом плодородия и талисманом против бессилия, а также эмблемой красоты, учености, изысканности, дружбы. На китайских картинах орхидеи в вазе символизируют согласие. 
С орхидеями связано множеств легенд и преданий. В китае очень любили этот прекрасный цветок, а во многих странах Латинской Америки, например, в Коста-Рике, Венесуэле, Гватемале и Панаме орхидеи стали национальным цветком и эмблемой. 
Красивая легенда о происхождении орхидей была у новозеландского племени майори. Они были уверены в божественном происхождении этих цветов. Давным-давно, задолго до появления людей, единственными видимыми частями земли были заснеженные пики высоких гор. Время от времени солнце подтаивало снег, заставляя тем самым воду бурным потоком спускаться с гор, образуя при этом восхитительные водопады. Те, в свою очередь, бурлящей пеной неслись в сторону морей и океанов, после чего, испаряясь, образовывали кучерявые облака. Эти облака в конце концов совсем заслонили от солнца вид на землю. 
Однажды солнцу захотелось проколоть этот непроницаемый покров. Пошел сильный тропический дождь. После него образовалась огромная радуга, обнявшая все небо. 
Восхищенные невиданным доселе зрелищем бессмертные духи - единственные тогда обитатели земли - стали слетаться к радуге со всех даже самых отдаленных краев. Каждому хотелось отхватить местечко на разноцветном мосту. Они толкались и бранились. Но потом все уселись на радугу и дружно запели. Мало-помалу радуга прогибалась под их тяжестью, пока наконец не рухнула на землю, рассыпавшись при этом на несметное количество мелких разноцветных искорок. 
Бессмертные духи, доселе не видевшие ничего подобного, затаив дыхание наблюдали за фантастическим разноцветным дождем. Каждая частичка земли с благодарностью приняла осколки небесного моста. Те из них, которые были пойманы деревьями, превратились в орхидеи. 
С этого и началось триумфальное шествие орхидей по земле. Разноцветных фонариков становилось все больше и больше, и уже ни один цветок не осмеливался оспаривать право орхидеи называться королевой цветочного царства.

It is always authentic, " the real deal", professionally cleaned & polished, & looks brand new! You can't go wrong purchasing from this site. Give them a try. You won't be sorry! Free shipping too!!" - AnneMarie "I recently bought a Tiffany&Co diamond wedding band for my fiancé through TrueFacet. We both had some pretty major reservations about the purchase; it was a lot of money to spend and on a brand name, not just not from the brand itself but from a website neither of us had ever heard of. But the great deal and the return policy gave us the confidence to pull the trigger, and we couldn't be happier! The band arrived in just two days and the diamonds were beyond sparkly (certainly an exciting package to open!). We immediately took the band to our jeweler to have everything verified and appraised and, to our delight, the diamonds measured twice as big as what had been listed! We also brought the band to Tiffany to have it double checked there, and everything is legit! We had such a positive experience with TrueFacet, I would definitely consider purchasing from them again and would absolutely recommend them to anyone!" - William "I love ordering jewelry from TrueFacet!
