Aurona and Samblana…

Aurona, the underground kingdomAurona, the land of gold and lights
There was nothing more beautiful than the underground kingdom of Aurona, made of caves full of gold and inestimable precious stones. Golden water flowed from its springs and even the animals had golden teeth. But the men could never see the sun; the King had drawn up a contract with them, according to which they gave up life outside the kingdom. But one day a rock fell from the roof leaving a hole through which, for the first time, the inhabitants were able to see the daylight, the meadows and the mountains. The people of the kingdom rushed out into this new world, which was much more beautiful, abandoning all their treasures.

Samblana, the Queen of eternal ice
Samblana wanted to own the most beautiful dress on earth. But she was so proud that other people did not like here and she went away to live in the “Glassy Mountains”, covered all year long with only ice and snow. Soon her veil began to merge with the ice of the mountain, so that she could no longer move.
One day two twin sisters arrived, bringing with them a wonderful blue stone, the “Rajetta”. Samblana had a mirror made out of this stone so that she could point the last rays of winter sunlight into the most distant corner of the valleys. She chose the two “Yemeles” to help all those who were in danger on the mountains.
