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 anointed with our "Merkaba" emblem, cast in Sterling Silver. Merkaba - "Mer" meaning Light, "Ka" meaning Spirit, and "Ba" meaning Body - is a powerful icon historically known as the "Vehicle of Ascension". The Merkaba opens the mind to increased awareness and promotes deep conscious interconnection.
The back of this Pinecone has been anointed with our "Third Eye" emblem, cast in 24k Gold. This powerful icon is a fusion of the Egyptian "Eye of Horus" -- a source of protection, good-health and power -- and the "Om" symbol -- a sacred symbol of the omnipotent, omnipresent divine, and of spiritual ascension.
