Marcasite Agate Heart~CRMARAH4. Marcasite is named for the Medieval Latin term "marcasita," a derivative of the Arabic word "markaschatsa," meaning "fire stone." This term isn't in reference to marcasite's beautiful metallic shine. Marcasite can actually spark when struck with iron or flint. The Ancient Incans, Greeks and Egyptians all valued marcasite. It was not uncommon to see Cleopatra herself adorned in marcasite gemstones. Marcasite is an iron sulfide that is chemically the same as Pyrite but is lighter in color, grows differently, and decomposes (with exposure to air, it oxidizes easily and crumbles, deteriorating to dust. Due to the fact that the Marcasite is in Agate in these specimens, it is completely protected from this process. Marcasite is a polymorph (the existence of a solid material in more than one form or crystal structure) of pyrite. A grounding stone (working closely with the earthstar, root, sacral, and solar plexus chakras) Marcasite activates one’s ability to see both the spiritual and physical worlds in great depth. Viewing both of these worlds in such depth allows one to see how they intertwine and how the physical world mirrors the spiritual. This is generally presented in the many patterns which are mirrored into physicality, giving one clues for which physical actions are necessary to take for one to resonate with the spiritual patterns they wish to mirror. The grounding vibrations of Marcasite draw one’s energy into the physical, increasing strength and stamina. This also aids in keeping one disciplined in physical activity. Marcasite helps one to become unstuck from the density of the physical realm, aiding them in co-creation of their true destiny. This is where one is able to take what they see in the spiritual world and physically manifest it into reality. These properties are of great assistance in keeping a spiritual mindset as one walks through life. It is especially helpful in becoming unattached from those whom one may have unhealthy relationships with. It protects one greatly by preventing psychic leaks and keeps wandering energies and entities away from any holes in the auric field. Marcasite aids emotionally by reminding one that they are responsible for their own reality, and in turn strengthening one’s co-creative abilities. It teaches one that by denying responsibility, we are also denying our own power to create better situations for ourselves. This helps one to express their limits, boundaries, and decisions in a healthy manner so that they may escape/avoid a victim mindset. It also provides one clarity regarding gender issues. Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, and so is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. Agate is excellent for balancing emotional, physical and intellectual energy, and in harmonizing yin and yang, the positive and negative forces of the universe. Agate is said to promote inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. Agate is thought to enhance creativity and strengthen the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. Emotionally, agate is considered a stone of courage, emotional strength, self-confidence, and dispels fears. 52mm x 48mm x 16mm
