Known as the "Tempest Stone" because of its connection to the storm element, Pietersite is said to hold "the keys to the kingdom of heaven." It stimulates the third eye, endocrine system and pineal gland, and is often used for vision quests and shamanic journeying for its ability to bring one quickly to a state of heightened awareness. It also promotes walking one's own truth, aiding in overcoming the obstacles to speaking one's mind and living with greater authenticity.
This Pinecone has been imprinted with the 64 Star Tetrahedron, cast in Sterling Silver. Envisioned as a 3-dimensional model of the I Ching, an ancient set of oracular Chinese Hexagrams, this emblem symbolizes the Creator, or the Great Void – the fundamental pattern that creates all matter.
