MOJO INFO ˆ´?
Much research has been done as to where, how and what these round discs are. Found in Illinois 300 feet beneath the Earth's surface, Pyrite Suns have formed over 300,000,000 years ago in the veins/seams between the layers of black shale and coal. They are not considered to be fossils (some thought they were fossilized Sand Dollars or Lily Pads) but instead, an aggregate of tiny Pyrite crystals that formed naturally in a circular shape. To date, there have only been seven coal mines in the World where Pyrite Suns have been found, and six of the seven mines are no longer in operation. Miners would place their "Suns" in their lunch boxes, not only as good luck but to preserve them from being destroyed during the mining process.
The Mojo: Pyrite
Pyrite, also known as "Fool's Gold" is from the Greek word "pyr" meaning "fire." Pyrite can and has been used to create sparks for starting fires if struck against metal or another hard material. Pyrite has a unique protective power as it draws energy from the Earth into the person's aura and creates a shield against negative energy and emotions, environmental pollutants and physical harm. If placed on a table or desk, energize the area around the stone. Pyrite is helpful when planning large business concepts as it teaches you how to see beyond fa̤ades and realize what is actually in front of and around you. Pyrite is also known to help relieve anxiety, frustration and boosts self-worth and confidence.
Pyrite is associated with the Solar Plexus/Third Chakra.
