This colorful, iridescent crystal is composed of Copper Iron Sulfide, an ore of Copper, and gets its coloring from oxidation of the crystal’s surface. Chalcopyrite is a stone of creativity, flexibility and innovation. Use Chalcopyrite to find new friendships as well as lost items. It can be beneficial for those whose lives have become mundane by increasing the creative processes and stimulating new ideas. It is the merging of Iron’s affinity with Venus (beauty) with Copper’s relation to Mars (power) that Chalcopyrite can benefit those in the fashion, media, and sales industries, as well as those starting a new fitness regimen or martial arts program.
Chalcopyrite helps us deal with fears of failure and poor self-esteem. It enhances communication with the Universe and helps with mediation. Chalcopyrite can shield the wearer from the effects of lengthy medical treatments (such as chemotherapy) or repeated surgical procedures. It is a detoxifying stone and may also help with inflammation, fevers, bronchitis and brain disorders.
