If I had to some of my favorite stones in the whole world, there is no doubt that pyrite would be somewhere on that list.

Pyrite is an earth element which often resonates with fire energy, symbolizing the warmth and lasting presence of the sun and the ability to generate wealth by one’s own power. This stone is masculine in nature, a stone of action, vitality and will, and taps into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion.
Pyrite is commonly found around the world in a variety of geological formations. But what’s fascinating about this stone is how it evolves. It starts as sedimentary deposits to hydrothermal veins and metamorphic rocks. As it evolves, it forms in masses, stalactites, grains, globes, cubes and even twelve-sided crystals! It also forms flat, radial disks called “suns” or “dollars.” As you can see, pyrite is a very fluid stone, and like our own lives, can evolve in any number of directions. I believe it’s important to always have a piece of pyrite in my offering bowl where I place near an entry or window space because pyrite is wonderful energy shield, blocking out negativity from various sources. It can also be very useful in strengthening the soul and lifting the spirit. I sometimes like to have a piece of pyrite near my most valuable possessions, to remind myself of the misconception surrounding the definition “wealth.” While pyrite attracts material abundance, it also facilitates the harvest of the soul and boosts your confidence and faith in your own abilities.
