Derived from the Greek word for blood due to its tell-tale red coloration when mined, Hematite is reputed to be one of the strongest grounding stones in the world. Used as a tool for grounding and protection, Hematite is said to protect the aura from negative energies that encourage a balance of yin and yang energies. It is also said to powerfully cleanse and purify the energy channels in the body, clearing negativity and providing clarity, stability and focus.
This Pinecone has been blessed with the Seed of Life, cast in Sterling Silver. This sacred symbol serves as the foundation or "Seed" for the Flower of Life, and represents the Seven days of Creation. It depicts the origins of all matter, in geometric perfection, with six circles (the six days of work) resting inside a seventh circle (the day of rest, the sabbath).
The Crushed Crystal pattern around the outside of this center stone has been carefully mixed with a powerful Phosphorescent powder, then inlaid into the pendant -- so it glows brightly in the dark!
(The Center stone hasn't been altered from its original elegant form, and does not glow)
