Pyrite stone is an iron sulfide mineral found in numerous geological formations such as cubes, grains, disks, stalactites and crystals.
This powerful stone is named after Fire. The word Pyrite has been derived from the Greek expression, ‘pyros’ or ‘pyr’ which means fire, mainly due to its quality to emit sparks when rubbed with a hard surface.
It seems as if the proverb, ‘All that glitters is not gold’ is written especially for the Pyrite stone, as its gleaming metallic gold lustre makes it so deceiving that it was nicknamed ‘Fool’s Gold’. Many fraudulent salt miners used pyrite to salt their mines by tricking people into buying it as gold.
In Ancient times, Incas used Pyrite while meditating to achieve prophecies and divination.
Pyrite being an Earth element, possesses the energy of Fire as well.
Spiritually, it is known for stimulating the Second and Third Chakras enabling the user to distinguish between what’s real and unreal by unveiling the hidden aspects.
