The belemnites are an extinct group of cephalopods. They resembled a modern octopus but had ten arms of equal length, covered in hooks, and a series of internal shells used for both buoyancy and ballast. The most commonly preserved one is the bullet like guard, more technically called a rostrum (Latin “beak”), originally located inside the tail end of the animal. The name belemnite comes from the Greek belemnon (“dart”), after the rostrum’s pointed shape. -ENTER THE EARTH
Pyrite is a stone of progress, and is ideal for those times when we’re blown off-course by exhaustion, apathy, or negative influences. In these situations, Pyrite forges new paths for us that we can follow to success and self-mastery. Pyrite awakens the solar plexus chakra, gifting us with momentum and willpower when embarking on new projects. This stone is also useful for creative endeavors, as it teaches us that true resilience is less about white-knuckling than it is adaptability; Pyrite preaches “Work smart, not hard.” Pyrite gives us the courage to let go of plans that aren’t working for us, and encourages us to shift our energy towards ambitions that make better use of our talents and our passions.
