Pyrite Cluster

Pyrite (also known as Fool’s Gold) is a shiny and radiant stone that has the ability to attract the energies of wealth and abundance.  Though it carries Earth energy, it is typically associated with fire energy traits, resonating with warmth, the sun, vitality, and inner power.

Pyrite is an excellent defensive stone that is capable of shielding against physical, etheric, and emotional damage. It helps keep out negative vibrations and pollutants by creating an energy field within one’s aura. This makes it helpful when performing dangerous work, as it can ward against harm. This protection extends into the body, as this stone is thought to be capable of repairing RNA and DNA, as well as prevent diseases.

Historical Folklore

Pyrite gets its name from the Greek word pyr, meaning “fire”.

The Incas and Aztecs polished large slabs of this stone for use as mirrors and for scrying.

Native Americans treasured pyrite, believing it to be a magical healing stone.


Pyrite is a mineral made up of sulfur and iron. For more information on Pyrite’s geology, we recommend this source.

Chakra Association

Pyrite is typically associated with the sacral and solar plexus chakras


It is possible to cleanse pyrite through sound healing with the help of a chime or pitchfork. As it is an iron-based stone, it should not be put under water. It is also toxic and should not be ingested. Please wash your hands after handling pyrite.

Astrological Association

Gemini and Aquarius are thought to resonate with Pyrite.

Health Folklore

According to folklore, pyrite is capable of strengthening the bones and brain, as well as aiding the functions of the digestive, circulatory, and respiratory organs.
