These oceanic bottom-feeders harness a lot more life in them than just a New England restaurant delicacy. In natural conditions, lobsters have been known to live over 100 years old! Though in the fishing industry, lobsters are caught at only 6-8 years old, approximately the age in which they reach one full pound. The largest lobster ever recorded was over three and a half feet long and a whopping 44 pounds off the coast of Nova Scotia. Lobsters have a hard and sturdy upper shell while their underbellies are far more fragile, making them perfect examples of embodying balance between the characteristics we show to the world, and the softer ones we keep close to the heart.
A polymorph of pyrite, this stone is loved for its iridescent, metallic sheen. It’s not only beautiful but will actually spark when struck by iron or flint. Thought to aid in focus and strengthen one’s cognitive abilities, this stone is worn to help push its wearer over the proverbial finish line.
