All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

A conversation recently came about between a friend and myself, and it would seem we cannot come to an agreement. We have been hashing it out over what is and what is not a Pentacle/Pentagram.

My understanding is (after 11 years of studies) the Pentagram is a five pointed star that represents the elements--A symbol of power, and the Pentacle is a ritual object in which the pentagram is inscribed on. 

I would love some feedback on the subject as to how others view these symbols.

The technical, geometric term for a five pointed star is Pentagram. Period.

Pentacle, i say, is the pentagram encased in a circle (penta=from "pentagram", five pointed star; cle=from "circle") but there are many, many schools of thought on this. Mine is just ONE opinion.

I thought the difference was if the star was inverted or not...but both had a circle around them.....? But both are for protection if I'm not mistaken...?

My understanding is that whether inverted or not it's still a pentagram.. Inverted just means matter over mind versus the regular pentagram which is mind over matter.
