Pyrite (Iron Pyrite)

Written and compiled by – Patricia Jean Martin
he name Pyrite comes from the Greek word “pyr” meaning “fire,” and was named such because it was found that sparks would fly from it if struck against another mineral (best if Iron or Steel). In early times, this sparking ability gave man one way of creating fire; in later times, this ability made it popular for use in early firearms devices such as the wheel lock. Today Pyrite also carries the name of “Fool’s Gold” for the simple reason that many throughout history have mistaken it for Gold because of its similar visible structure, metallic luster and brassy yellow color...

Earth’s Core Crystal

 

CNN – July 1996

Deep inside the Earth, spinning in a watery pool of iron, the Earth’s core is a giant iron crystal slightly smaller but more dense than the moon. Beyond that, the substance at the heart of our planet always has been a mystery. Although seismologist Xiaodong Song acknowledged the mystery is “really a complicated problem,” he and fellow seismologist Paul Richards have managed to unravel it. They announced that their relatively superficial study of 28 years’ worth of earthquake records at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory shows the core is in motion, and going at a pretty good clip.

The Columbia scientists measured the underground effects of earthquakes, determining how quickly their movement travels through the center of the Earth to other places ...

Crystal at the Center of the Earth

A Seismic Adventure

There’s a giant crystal buried deep within the Earth, at the very center, more than 3,000 miles down. It may sound like the latest fantasy adventure game or a new Indiana Jones movie, but it happens to be what scientists discovered in 1995 with a sophisticated computer model of Earth’s inner core. This remarkable finding, which offers plausible solutions to some perplexing geophysical puzzles, is transforming what Earth scientists think about the most remote part of our planet.
“To understand what’s deep in the Earth is a great challenge,” says geophysicist Lars Stixrude. “Drill holes go down only 12 kilometers, about 0.2 percent of the Earth’s radius. Most of the planet is totally inaccessible to direct observation...

Crystal Grids By Peggy Jentoft

There are different kinds of crystal structures that are called grids. There are so many kinds and forms that we not going to be able to explore very many of them at this time and will just begin with a general introduction and few simple forms . I usually work with very simple grids rather than the more elaborate and esoteric forms and do not find them any less effective than more elaborate grids or those made with a lot of formal ritual . Your experience may differ.
