1888's Take: "I remade this rock garden three times. There was something about the pyrite that I wasn't getting right.... but when I went back and looked at the images of the first draft... I loved them... the the second draft... I loved those too.... What was happening? I was putting my own feelings of not being good enough into my work. I realized that sometimes art must simply be made and judgement left to the audience. It was perfect the first time... the second... and the third." - Nathan
A stone of action, vitality and will, Pyrite taps into one’s abilities and potential while stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion.
The name comes from the Koine Greek amethystos "not" and methysko "intoxicate". Traditionally worn to guard against drunkenness & restore a sober mind.
