Pyrite is often called “Fool’s Gold,” though there is nothing foolish about this mineral. Within its gleaming beauty is a stone of hidden fire 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 with 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.
What Is Pyrite Crystal Meaning And Properties?
Pyrite is a talisman for luck and prosperity—it can help you manifest your dreams into reality! Because of its connection with both Earth and Fire energy—which are both male energies—Pyrite is considered masculine in nature. As such, it promotes the development of willpower and leadership skills within those who wear it regularly. 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 forms in masses, stalactites, grains, globes, striated cubes or twelve-sided pentagonal dodecahedral crystals. It also forms as flat, radial disks called “suns” or “dollars.” It is usually pale brassy-yellow in color, opaque, with a strong gold-like metallic luster though some forms oxidize in moist environments and may be a darker brownish-gold. The name Pyrite derives from the Greek pyr or pyros which means “fire” for its ability to emit sparks when pieces are struck together or against a hard surface.
You can use Pyrite in several ways:
- Hold it in your hands and visualize what you want to manifest
- Place it on top of an object or paper with your goals written down (this should be something you’re trying to manifest)
- Use it as an altar decoration or in your meditation space to attract abundance and make manifesting your goals easier. It’s also a perfect stone for anyone trying to manifest something, like a new job or love.
