NAME ORIGIN
    Puroboros is a mistranslation of Pirobolus, a male or female rock from Roman mythology that when brought close to its counterpart would burst into flames. Reportedly found only in the East, they were written about in the Greek text Physiologus, a compilation of animals, birds and mythological creatures. The name Pirobolus is Latin for "fire stone".
