Pyrite is also known as “Fool’s Gold,” which is sometimes mistaken as real gold due to its shiny yellow metallic appearance. It is an iron sulfide mineral with a hardness of 6 to 6.5. Its crystal patterns are cubic, pyritohedral or octahedral. Within its gleaming beauty is a stone of hidden fire, one that can be sparked to life by striking it against metal or stone. An Earth element, it also resonates with Fire energy, symbolizing the warmth and lasting presence of the sun and the ability to generate wealth by one’s own power.
Metaphysical Healing Properties Pyrite enhances willpower, assisting one in overcoming bad habits and establishing new patterns of health and positive energy. Pyrite aids in overcoming fear and anxiety, bringing confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion.
As a talisman, Pyrite is a unique protector, drawing energy from the Earth through the physical body and into the aura creating a defensive shield against negative energies, environmental pollutants, emotional attack and physical harm. It also supports one with a spirit of boldness and assertive action when protecting others, the planet, or in standing up for important issues of community. It stimulates the Second and Third Chakras, enhancing will power and the ability to see behind facades to what is real. Pyrite was highly prized by the native Indian tribes of the Americas as a healing stone of magic, and was polished into mirrors for gazing and divination. Before the 1800’s, it was favored as a decorative stone, carved into rosettes, shoe buckles, rings, snuff boxes and other ornaments, and was extremely popular in England during the Victorian Age for its use in jewellery.
