Pyrite is known as ‘Fool’s Gold’ and has this gorgeous rich look about it that closely resembles the shine and sparkle of real gold. It can very quickly bring on positive energy and help people to feel and appear more confident and empowered when carrying it around with them. You may want to use this “stone of luck” if you have to do a lot of of public speaking and it can also aid people who suffer with general conversation.
Pyrite is powerfully protective and can shield your energy by deflecting negativity and bad vibrations, resulting in the ability to think and feel more clearly. For that reason, it could be a good idea to display next to electric devices in your work and living spaces too. The name derives from the Greek word ‘pyr’, meaning fire and is a name that was used in ancient times for various minerals that emitted sparks if hit by an iron tool. This is a great stone to use when you want to strengthen your willpower and realize the deeper meaning of your words and actions. Using this crystal around your Solar Plexus will encourage health, intellect, and emotional well-being. Believed to sharpen your perceptions, boost learning and intelligence, Pyrite is a must-have for everyone.
