Pyrite is a golden stone that is opaque, with a bright, metallic luster. This crystal typically forms in cubes. Pyrite often tarnishes to a dull brass color.

Pyrite is a very protective stone, shielding the user from negative energy of all kinds. Pyrite blocks energy leaks and mends auric tears. Carry Pyrite in your pocket to protect you from both environmental pollution and physical danger. Pyrite also promotes good physical health and emotional well-being.

Traditionally, Pyrite is known as a stone of luck, helping to attract abundance, wealth and prosperity to the user, via its creative energies of manifestation, and its encouragement of following one's dreams. This quality makes Pyrite excellent for grid work and rituals. Pyrite not only deflects negative energies, but also helps to release negative and inhibiting patterns of behavior. Pyrite can enhance one's will during challenging times and supports the action necessary for personal growth and success. Meditation with Pyrite can encourage greater frequency in moments of inspiration, and its grounding action allows these higher frequencies to be grounded into the physical world.

Pyrite also promotes good physical health and emotional well-being. Pyrite is helpful for any type of infection and can purify the systems of the body. Pyrite can be used to bring a feeling of increased vitality during times of hard-work or stress. Pyrite is also great for balancing one's energetic fields. If you are feeling overworked lately, with no end in sight, then Pyrite might be for you! Pyrite makes a great gift for those in convalescence.

  I just got a 160g pyrite today. it is a miracle. I wish to get protection from any negative people.  (Submitted by: david on November 16, 2017)
  Visited a stonery and mineral place in Cape Town and amongst hundreds of semiprecious stones and minerals I was oddly attracted to one in particular; the strange black-gold square cubes to me unknown pyrite mesmerized me and became my instant favorite. So much so I left the gift shop with a pair of cufflinks. Comings home I found several articles linking the stone to Mars, to the Sun, to as the birthstone for Leo. Guess what - I am a Leo, my planet is the Sun and my adjendant is Mars! I did not find this stone - it found me!  (Submitted by: FRAnk! on October 17, 2017)
