Often referred to ‘Fools Gold’, Pyrite comes from the Greek for “firestone” because it was believed that Pyrite, a sparkling stone, held fire in its core. An excellent energy shield, Pyrite blocks out negative energy and pollutants at all levels, preventing and deflecting harm. It creates a positive outlook.
This stone sees behind a façade to what is. It strengthens confidence in masculinity but may be too powerful for ‘macho’ men, initiating aggression.
Pyrite is very fast-acting and is particularly helpful for getting to the root of karmic and psychosomatic disease. Cubic Pyrite expands and structures mental capabilities, balancing instinct with intuition, creativity with analysis.
It’s a great stone for attracting wealth, abundance, and lashings of good luck and for those reasons, pieces of Pyrite will do well when placed in workspaces, studios, and any spot where creative thinking takes place.
Pyrite is connected to the zodiac sign of Leo and the planet Mars.
