Award of the Phoenix’s Pyrite
To all and singular unto whom these presents shall come, Their Excellenc(y/ies) of the Barony of the Sacred Stone do proclaim as follows:
Deep in the earth, the mineral pyrite shines boldly as gold itself. Polished, it reflects as purely as any mirror. Struck by the steel blade, fire sparks forth like the Phoenix ignited to life.
So are those who continue above and beyond any duty, to serve the common good of Our Barony. Their reflections is the image of selfless service. However, unlike soft gold and fragile mirrors, those so dedicated spark flames only brighter when tested by the sharpest steel of both time and situation. It is this vital flow of priceless service beyond common reason that brings harmony and improves these Lands for Ourselves and the Crown for which We hold Them.
Know all, therefore, that We would recognize (recipient) with the Award of the Phoenix’s Pyrite in recognition of the constant, continued and long standing service contributed to Our Barony of the Sacred Stone.
Done by our hands this day at (event name) on the (date) day of (month), AS (L) (Being (2015) in the common era)
