Large nude fairy necklace, a garden nymph flitting from flower to flower. The nymphs were usually associated with things that were fertile and growing, such as trees, or with water. They were not immortal, but they lived extremely long lives and were generally kind to humans. They were classified based on the natural domain with which they were associated.

Unlike Greek goddesses, nymphs are generally regarded as personifications of nature, are usually associated with a specific location or landform, and are typically depicted as beautiful maidens. The fae of ancient Greece were nymphs, tall, beautiful supernatural women who represented springs and rivers, trees and pools, mountains and caves. They, like all fae and supernatural beings in general, could be dangerous. Nymphs, as supernatural beings, have a wide range of supernatural abilities. Nymphs have control over the elements and can inflict curses, harm, injury, and death on mortals who invoke their wrath.
Their presence could simply influence one to inspired speech, as Socrates stated in the Phaedrus when the nymphs of the nearby stream inspired him. They sometimes healed the sick, but according to folklore, they were also responsible for stealing healthy babies and replacing them with changelings. A man who saw a nymph could become nympholeptos: “taken by the nymphs” or “possessed by the nymphs,” never to be the same again—perhaps not dissimilar to our “off with the fairies.” There were also folktales about nymphs duping people into spending days or weeks with them that turned out to be years or centuries.
