there is a legend..
Venus once bathed in the mountain springs and lost a lock of her golden hair.
When she came back to Olympus she discovered the loss and decided to return.
The time in the home of the gods is otherwise than on the ground. One moment passed there while in the our world passed months, come winter, and spring water is frozen.
but the hair in the frozen water looked so beautiful..
Venus decided to save them for the people, turning ice into the beautiful transparent stone/
