Besides all the negative stuff, like the violence it wrought in Valinor, there is the history it brought to the story of Luthien and Baran. One became a sign of hope, the one bound upon the brow of Earendil. It is thought...or hoped... that at the End of Days all three sils will be brought together once again and can be used to renew Teleperion and Laurelin in Valinor.

As in earthly, do you mean in Tolkien's mythology...or our own?

The main significance in the Silmarils lay in the fate that they came with. The last 'Holy Light' lay in these things that Feanor made, and that light was taken away by Morgoth. The only way to get it back is to reunite all of the Silmarils together again, but that will not happen until after the Day of Doom, when Feanor returns from the dead, and the Silmarils are recovered from the (now broken) Arda. Then will their substance be known, and Feanor will break them apart and Yavanna will have the 'Holy Light' once more.

Real life comparisons to all that? Maybe something to do with the Norse Ragnarok?

Apperantly to insight war and greed. The gods were not impressed. Thats why they didn't take turns keeping them. You get this week I get the next sort of thing. The elves and the dwarves were in love though. I think Morgoth just wanted to poke them with a stick. Hmmm.... now why does that remind me of someone. lol

I quess we could ask why the Hope Diamond is supossed to be cursed? Or the delhi purple sapphire, or the La Peregrina Pearl? Every one around the pearl seemed to be driven to lust and incestuous relations. The Delphi sapphire seemed to bring misfortune, sickness, even death to those who touched it. The Hope Diamond fairs no better. It is said that gems and minerals carry innate powers. Most or for healing. But many such as the ones mentioned above were stolen from temples or from the presence of "gods". Taken from their native settings. Much like what happened to the Sils. Could this have been the "curse" of the Sils....not of their own doings....but by those who handled them irreverently?

I think that we've hit upon a vein. Like the Sils (as they have been refered to here), the Hope diamond and the sapphire of Delhi they have lost sway. No one younger than me and only half the people my age know what they are. I am not a spring chick. Does this speak to the theme of the stories?
