Pyrite is an unmistakable material with a brassy yellow hue and metallic lustre. Although its appearance is similar to gold it is in fact quite easy to tell one from the other. Not only is pyrite not as yellow but it's also lighter in weight and brittle so will break quite easily. Gold on the other hand is malleable which means it can be shaped and compressed to form almost any shape. Bang a piece of pyrite with a hammer and it will shatter, do the same with a piece of gold and it will become flatter and flatter.
The chemical compound of iron and sulphur means pyrite is an iron sulphide mineral. Its name is derived from the Greek word ‘pyr’ meaning ‘fire’ because stones spark when struck. Since antiquity iron pyrite has been used for lighting fires.
In crystal healing the reflective properties of pyrite link it to the sun and it’s also considered to be an excellent shield that blocks negative energy. It radiates positive energy and relieves anxiety and frustration and boosts self-worth and confidence. Iron pyrite is also used to improve mental activity (memory and recall) and to increase energy particularly when the requirement is to overcome fatigue.
The pyrite tumbled stones from our collection are a medium sized stone but individual weights and sizes do vary slightly from piece to piece.
