Pyrite pendant with little filigree details and a hinged bail. The elongated oval stone measures 17mm wide by 29.2mm long. The pendant measures 2.48 inches long not including the two jump rings.
The design is suggestive of an angel.
Pyrite is also known as Fool's Gold and Iron Pyrite as it is an iron sulfide. Pyrite comes from a Greek word pyr, a reference to a stone that strikes fire. Pyrite is semi-conductible.
According to Rudolph Steiner, Pyrite improves circulation, the respiration of the skin and larynx. Think of it for bronchitis, laryngitis, pharyngitis, sore throat, trachetitis, and tonsilitis. Think throat chakra.
Also alleviates nervous exhaustion.
Pyrite is often recommended for releasing the trauma at the core of stammering.
