"What are the metaphysical properties that would distinguish Pyrite from Chalcopyrite in meditative/energetic practices?"
To double check the crystal, Chalcopyrite is softer, 3.5-4 on the Mohs scale, where Pyrite is 6-6.5 on the Mohs scale. If it can be scratched with a copper coin it is most likely Chalcopyrite. Pyrite would take a steel file to scratch it.
On an energetic level, the Chalcopyrite is related to the Crown chakra and opens energy blockages and perception. It assists with self-esteem creating inner security.
Pyrite is related to the Base chakra. It blocks negative energy, deflects harm and is useful in grounding. Fast acting, it helps males with inferiority complex strengthen confidence. In some females and those who are already confident, it can trigger aggression.
I hope you find this helpful!
