*Pyrite is most attractive in it's raw form. Due to the nature of the stone, one would definitely have it on display rather than carry it in a pocket or hold in one's hand. Pyrite is an iron ore, it can transfer blackish residue onto light fabrics & surfaces, admiring it on a shelf, desk or bedside table is best suited for this stone. It's one of my personal favorite stones.
The stones can be carried in the provided pouch, left in a vehicle, displayed on a night stand or desk, and kept near as a visual reminder of what that stone might represent.
Pyrite from the Greek per or pyros, means “fire” it is so named for its ability to produce sparks when pieces are struck together or against a hard surface.
Native American Indian tribes valued Pyrite as a healing magical stone. They would polished into reflective surfaces used for gazing. Pyrite’s biggest use occurred during World War II when it was mined as a source of Sulfur for producing sulfuric acid.
Pyrite is thought to be a protective, shielding stone, some people believe it is good to carry as a way to deflect harm and danger.
It has also been said that Pyrite inspires creativity in art, mathematics, science, architecture and many disciplines, as well as being a stone for prosperity.
Is all that true?
I have researched these stones, and to the best of my ability share with you what I believe to be the most accurate information. We can verify much of the science such as chemical make-ups, interactions, and practical uses, but beyond that I can only share the recorded history regarding believed spiritual attributes associated with the stones.
I believe humans are drawn to rocks, crystals and gemstones because they are made up of some of the very same minerals that are in our own bodies. They are elemental, naturally beautiful and we connect with them on some basic level, even if that level is just that we think they're gorgeous and unique. They have been incorporated into every culture and civilization throughout the earth's history.
Personally, I love learning the history of these stones, how they were used, what people believed they could do, and where they were found in the world. I think their crystalline structures, chemical make-ups, and how they are formed within the earth is truly magical, but beyond that I just love looking at them and have a hunch you do too. So let's just enjoy them, don't over think it.
