Pinolite Shield Necklace
I am drawn to the black and white random patterns in this stone. Discovered in 1873, it’s called Pinolith or Pinolite and is found in a magnesite deposit located in Lower Tauern, a mountain range of the Central Eastern Alps in Austria.
Pinolith is thought to promote imagination and creativity by banishing negativity and encouraging clarity of mind for positive visualization. Metaphysical adherants credit pinolith with helping them attain the highest state of meditation, finding it a useful aid for relaxation.
