Ahh, the Green Gem in which the sunlight was captured yet radiated green. What do all of you think, Tolkien going back to Silmarils thing. I truly enjoyed the story. What do all of you think of the Elessar?
The stone you are reffering to was laid there by Gandalf, possibly to tell Aragorn that there where no enemies in the sorrounding area.Originally posted by Strider
..then what do you say about the elfstone laid down in the middle of the bridge, for frodo and co to find? makes me kinda wonder about giving away elfstones, thus, elessar cannot be elfstone, i think i read somewheres that the elssar has something to do with i dunno, savior?
Elessar; High title and surname of Aragorn son of Arathorn. It was long foretold that he would take this name. It was given to him in Lórien by Galadriel. She granted him a gift of a green stone set in a silver brooch in the shape of an eagle as he and the Company of the Ring left her land.
"In this hour, take the name that was foretold for you, Elessar, the Elfstone of the house of Elendil!"
Right. The actual meaning is *Star-stone, from elen + sar (assimilation of n-s here in composition). Here elen is used to mean "Elf" however ~ there had been earlier confusion among the Edain with elen "star" and elda "elf".
