Very pretty piece of picture Rhyolite. Looks almost like a rainbow! I wrapped it with Sterling Silver woven wire. The pendant including the bail is 2.5 x 1" wide.
SCIENCE & MYTH
Rhyolite strengthens mind, body and soul and is useful for past-life healing. It helps us to process the past and integrate it with the present, bringing us peace of mind by teaching us to live in the moment. It aids in bringing insight and resolution to difficulties, stimulating solutions and promoting forward movement in life. Rhyolite enhances self esteem, self worth, self respect and deepens the acceptance of our true self. It helps us to heal old emotional wounds and to deal with challenging circumstances calmly and with inner strength. It is used to aid communication with animals and the realm of Nature.
