Blessed Virgin Mary Medals (Lady of virgin cobre)
The Virgin of Caridad del Cobre was first revealed to Juan de Hoyos, Rodrigo de Hoyos, and Juan Moreno, known as "los tres Juanes", in 1604, in a bay known as Bahía de Nipe, on the coast of Cuba. They were out on the bay in a small row boat, when a storm arose and nearly swamped the boat. They prayed to the Virgin to save them, and the Virgin of Caridad del Cobre appeared to them and calmed the waters, and they were saved. She was the Virgin of Caridad, or the Virgin of Charity, and she had a shrine in Spain already where she was well known, but her appearance in Cuba marked a new era for this Virgin. She was eventually moved to another location in Cuba called Cobre, because of the copper mine that was near there ("cobre" means "copper" in Spanish). Caridad del Cobre is probably the most important figure in the Cuban sect of Santeria. She is seen as the representative of the African goddess Ochum (or Ochun, as it is sometimes spelled), the goddess of love. Caridad del Cobre is also the patron saint of Cuba
