Sardonyx and pyrite necklace and earrings. Nothing fancy - just another personal piece with some energy healing work in mind.
Pyrite is said to help with inflammation, which is 99% of my issues these days. Sardonyx, which here is a mix of black onyx and carnelian, is an alternative birthstone for August (handy for me, since I like peridot but find it too bright most of the time). Carnelian is helpful with bones, joints, and forms of arthritis, and onyx is good for the feet, so the combination works for me right now, and sardonyx is also protective - something my compromised immune system doubtless would appreciate.
I feel better having this to wear (there is a matching bracelet I haven’t pictured). I do feel less stiff and swollen. Whether that’s just a placebo effect, the energy of the stones, or simply having something to wear that’s new and I really enjoy…well, I don’t care why it is. Anything that helps is fine by me, right now, regardless of why.
