Pyrite, often called “Fool’s Gold,” even though there is nothing foolish about this mineral. Within its gleaming nature 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. It is masculine in nature, a stone of action, vitality and will, and taps into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings 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 inspires creativity in art, mathematics, science, architecture and many disciplines, especially those that recognize the inherent perfection and harmonious symmetry of nature and the universe. It stirs the qualities of ambition, commitment and perseverance, and is an ideal stone for students.
It’s energies directly resonate with the solar plexus chakra that activates one's personal will. These energies are what hold the key to accomplishing our life goals. However, they only become achievable by hard work and dedication. Pyrite will help keep you on track until your objectives have been attained.
This mineral is also very powerful when it comes to manifestation. Meditating with a piece of Pyrite, or simply carrying around a stone daily can have a dramatic effect on your life. Meditating with Pyrite helps activate its powers which then transfer directly to you. We always recommend saying out loud what it is that you want in your life. From that point forward cultivate those thoughts and ideas into a tangible product. Just hearing yourself say what you want can remind you that it is in fact achievable.
