Happy Friday the 13th!

It's going to be a lucky day I can feel it.   Can't you?!

This is what happened from the last inspiration, some fun bling...

More Inspiration

I found myself drawn to this palette, the golden color of pyrite, and the calmness of aquamarine.  It felt like a good combo.

Pyrite:  The resemblance of pyrite to gold has made it a traditional symbol for money and good luck.  It's sunny golden color associates it with the sun, and with fortification and strengthening of the mind.  The name comes from the Greek word meaning "a stone which strikes fire". Iron Pyrite makes a wonderful energy shield, blocking out negativity from various sources.  Some of its properties include:
  • Overcomes inertia and feelings of inadequacy
  • Energizes the area where you place it (such as on a desk where you work)
  • Helps you to see behind a facade
Use this stone to overcome lethargy and fatigue.  It increases the oxygen supply to the blood and strengthens the circulatory system.  It is beneficial for the lungs, alleviating bronchitis and asthma.

Aquamarine is a blue-green stone that comes from Colombia and Brazil.  It has been called "Water of the Sea", because of its color.  The aquamarine is the stone of sailors, believing it would be protection for them on water.  Folklore says the aquamarine will protect against gossip.  It is also said the aquamarine will pick up spirits. It is an excellent stone to use for meditating.  This is the stone to help you be in touch with your spiritual being.  Aquamarine is also often associated with the thymus gland.  It is very soothing worn as a necklace.  Healers use it to help reduce fluid retention. It has been used to calm the nerves.
