I’m looking for something that represents a good person who’s existence has been hell and hurt but this persons heart and soul are soft and unbreakable at the same time. Someone who when all others would have been broken, they fight and survive regardless. One who will hurt so others don’t have to.

I have found hundreds of semi precious stones etched with markings(3 pronged crown,and wolf track which I believe belonged to King William the second) also in the mix of things I have discovered that slot of the things are turning out to be Viking.(several are carved in the image of a wolf head ,spear poor wolf head with Viking symbols)even shekels trace back to minted in Jerusalem 50-76 bc.
