Since four-leaf clovers are very rare in nature, it takes some luck to find one. But now the search is over.
Lucky charms, also referred to as talismans, are supposed to bring fortune, wealth, good health and also help to live a long life. According to legend, Eve took a four-leaf clover from paradise as a memento. That is the reason, it is said, that the owner of such a clover is able to call a piece of paradise his own.
In Ireland clover played a major role. For a long time it was believed that the plant had a magical effect. For instance, on Rathlin Island, off the north coast of Ireland, it was said that if one rubs pounded clover over one’s eyes a fairy island could be seen between Rathlin and Ireland. The Celts believed that clover prepared as tea cleansed the blood.
The belief that a four-leaf clover brings luck is widespread throughout most parts of the world and has therefore, made people search for their personal specimen for centuries.
