Unique Minerals Celebrated June 20 2014 - Catherine Angiel, 0 Comments

All that glitters isn't always gold & who cares

Recently jewelry artist Catherine Angiel has been inspired by pyrite, an earth mineral that most people know as 'Fool's Gold'. Pyrite has been used to make jewelry for centuries, reaching the height of its popularity during the Victorian era. A mineral that evokes images of fire and warmth, pyrite literally comes from the Greek word for fire, Catherine found that it fit right in with her modern-vintage aesthetic. Aside from being known as 'Fool's Gold', pyrite has been called 'healer's gold' and is used as a gemstone for protection and promoting a happy state of mind. 

Pyrite is perfect for those who are looking for something different to add to their jewelry box, while maintaining an overall glamorous feeling.
