PYRITE

I'm so happy they finally received this collection, I've been obsessed since they announced, I believe it's exclusive to Liberty. It's the most beautiful combo! Pyrite and silver, and the chains are both adjustable, they're selling adjustable chains separately now which is brilliant.

I adore it, pyrite is like mirrors and we all know how much I love mirrors, as for wearable mirrors- come on, nothing is better than wearable mirrors.

Not that I'm crazy about the mix of metals here but this is just what I was wearing, and I don't like things too clean anyway.

I love the bracelet/ring combo like so:

Mystical Properties:
Both earth and fire energies are captured within the pyrite stone; a perfect tool to assist in balancing (or activating) the root (1st) or base chakra. Pyrite helps one to communicate more openly and honestly, providing both emotional and physical protection. If you are indecisive, or unsure about something, carry a pyrite with you as a touchstone to help boost your self confidence. The reflective qualities of the stone make it a wonderful meditation or divination tool....just as the ancient Inca's used it.

Pyrite increases physical stamina, stimulates the intellect and helps to transform thought into intelligent action. It is a wonderful stone for use in wealth magic or assisting in manifestation of needed energies. An excellent shield-stone, pyrite removes negativity from the aura to help one concentrate.

Healing Properties:
Pyrite is said to balance hormonal rhythms, and to ease the discomfort of menstruation. It is also useful in clearing up confusion of one's physical symptoms so as to generate a more accurate diagnosis. Pyrite "suns" draw pain from the body, as well as assist in easing depression symptoms. It is also said to help in reducing swelling or reducing fevers when used directly on the physical body.
