Pyrite is a powerful protection stone which shields and protects against all forms of negative vibrations and/or energy, working on the physical, etheric, and emotional levels. It’s known to stimulate the intellect and enhance memory, helping to recall relevant information when needed.


Pyrite History

This golden-hued gemstone got its name for the Greek word pyr, which means "fire." Pyrite gemstones can be used to create sparks if it is struck against metal or another hard material. In fact, pieces of pyrite have been used in flintlock firearms to help produce the necessary spark. Pyrite gemstones were important to the production of sulfur and sulfuric acid, especially during the World War II era. Long before this use though, pyrite was valued by some Native American peoples as a healing stone. During the Victorian Age, pyrite was a favorite stone for creating carved rosettes, shoe buckles, rings and other decorative elements.

Due to pyrite's gold color, luster and high specific gravity, this gem can be mistaken for gold, hence this famous moniker: fool's gold. Pyrite is also quite similar to another gem called marcasite, however marcasite does not have the same brassy hue.

Pyrite Metaphysical Properties

Pyrite has long been valued as a strong protection stone that shields the wearer from negative energy as well as environmental pollutants. Thus, this stone helps promote physical well-being as well. Stimulating the second and third chakras, pyrite enhances strength of mind and willpower. Pyrite is also sometimes considered to be lucky, attracting wealth and abundance. Though not a birthstone, pyrite is most commonly associated with the zodiac sign of Leo.

Pyrite Geological Properties

Though commonly found in Canada, Mexico, Namibia, Peru, Russia and Spain, pyrite can be found all over the world since it forms in all types of environments. Pyrite is a brassy-colored mineral featuring a metallic luster resembling gold. Pyrite has a chemical composition of iron disulfide (FeS2) and is the most common sulfide. Pyrite forms in some of the most interesting natural structures, including nearly perfect cubes and octahedrons. Another interesting formation is what is known as penetration twinning, where two or more crystals are intergrown. Pyrite deposits can contain small amounts of other minerals or gems such as cobalt, nickel, silver and true gold.


As pyrite so vividly reveals, not all that glimmers is gold. This lustrous stone is heralded around the world for its likeness to gold, but the gifts and powers it possesses are worth far more than earthly riches.

Pyrite is the crystal of protection, offering an energetic shield that safeguards your mind, body and spirit against negative forces. The pyrite stone brings energetic shelter as well as motion to old, stagnant thoughts and patterns.
