Silicon dioxide, occurring in crystalline amorphous and impure forms as in
quartyopal and sand respectively.

The principle deposits outcrops in huge quantities and good qualities
especially in Southern parts of Jordan.


Glass sand deposits are founded in the Disi Sandstone Formation of (Lower
Ordovician) sandstone, and lower portion of Kurnub (Lower Cretaceous).

The Glass sand of economic importance occur in the lower Ordovician.

ISHTAR

The Babylonian goddess of love and fertility

(http://www.pantheon.org/mythica/gallery/mesopotamian/ishtar.html; link no longer active)

...having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication

[She is one of Aphrodite's counterparts].

Aphrodite

In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty and sexual rapture. According to Hesiod, she was born when Uranus (the father of the gods) was castrated by his son Cronus. Cronus threw the severed genitals into the ocean which began to churn and foam about them. From the aphros ("sea foam") arose Aphrodite, and the sea carried her to either Cyprus or Cythera. Hence she is often referred to as Kypris and Cytherea. Homer calls her a daughter of Zeus and Dione.

After her birth, Zeus was afraid that the gods would fight over Aphrodite's hand in marriage so he married her off to the smith god Hephaestus, the steadiest of the gods. He could hardly believe his good luck and used all his skills to make the most lavish jewels for her. He made her a girdle of finely wrought gold and wove magic into the filigree work. That was not very wise of him, for when she wore her magic girdle no one could resist her, and she was all too irresistible already. She loved gaiety and glamour and was not at all pleased at being the wife of sooty, hard-working Hephaestus.

Aphrodite loved and was loved by many gods and mortals. Among her mortal lovers, the most famous was perhaps Adonis. Some of her sons are Eros, Anteros, Hymenaios and Aeneas (with her Trojan lover Anchises). She is accompanied by the Graces.

Her festival is the Aphrodisiac which was celebrated in various centers of Greece and especially in Athens and Corinth. Her priestesses were not prostitutes but women who represented the goddess and sexual intercourse with them was considered just one of the methods of worship. Aphrodite was originally an old-Asian goddess, similar to the Mesopotamian Ishtar and the Syro-Palestinian goddess Ashtart. Her attributes are a.o. the dolphin, the dove, the swan, the pomegranate and the lime tree.

In Roman mythology Venus is the goddess of love and beauty and Cupid is love's messenger.

__________________________

   Venus (Greek: Aphrodite; Babylonian: Ishtar) is the goddess of love and beauty. The planet is so named probably because it is the brightest of the planets known to the ancients. (With a few exceptions, the surface features on Venus are named for female figures.)

   Venus has been known since prehistoric times. It is the brightest object in the sky except for the Sun and the Moon. Like Mercury, it was popularly thought to be two separate bodies: Eosphorus [Phosphorus, 'light bringer'] as the morning star and Hesperus as the evening star, but the Greek astronomers knew better.

Ishtar ~ Inanna Altar

The Knot of Inanna is sacred to the Goddess. The image of this knot was the first written form of the Goddess's name. The Knot of Inanna often appears as the top of a tall pole. This symbol of the Goddess's authority was probably the original archetype of the much later crosier, which is carried by christian bishops and abbots.

Inanna descended into the underworld, adorned in Lapis Lazuli. She died and in three days returned alive to walk upon the Earth. The story of Her descent and return are ancient rebirth stories. Inanna's rising from the dead is a forerunner of the christian story of Jesus's resurrection, which parallels the earlier Inanna journey. The book "Inanna Queen of Heaven and Earth" by Wolkstein & Kramer recounts this tale in translations of ancient tablets.

Inanna is the Goddess of the Morning and Evening Star. The Semites honored Inanna as Ishtar. She Presides over the birth of both night and day. Next to Inanna is the sacred star sign of brilliant Venus. The Star of Venus is a symbol of both death and rebirth. The winged Goddess moved freely between the worlds.

Childbirth

Among Her many other titles, Inanna is the "Goddess of Love and Procreation". Sacred marriage rites were performed at New Year and the blessings of Inanna were sought to insure fertility.

This flame burns to honor Inanna
May She grant the blessings of Fertility
to all who seek this Gift.

Inanna is known as "First Daughter of the Moon" Sitting upon Her lapis lazuli throne, She was the beloved Goddess of Sumeria.

The Rosette has been a symbol associated with many Goddesses, but it is especiially sacred to both Inanna, Ishtar ans Astarte. Some scholars think that the Rosette is a symbol for the star of Venus. The Rosette is the "Star of the Earth" and grows up from the underworld beneath the ground. It is the Earth's star, as Venus is the star of the heavens. Many carved rosettes have survived, they vary widely in their patterns, but all are clearly representations of the rosette.
