History | Science

Also called "Iron Pyrite" or "Fool's Gold" for its role in confusing miners hoping for a big break, Pyrite is a naturally occuring iron disulfide mineral. The name "Pyrite" comes from the Greek "Pyr," which means "fire," due to the spark it emits when hit with metal. In fact, Pyrite specimen found in prehistoric burial sites suggests that it was, in fact, used as a fire-starter before more sophisticated methods were invented.
In modern times, in addition to being kept for its beauty, lower-grade pyrite is used to create iron sulfate, which is used in nutritional supplements to treat anemia, ink, lawn conditioner, and even water treatment.

Metaphysical Properties

We can't think of the concept of abundance without Pyrite! Perhaps due to its ancient associations with fire as well as its metallic luster, Pyrite is known as a powerful stone of vitality, confidence, and wealth. In addition, it is a protective stone, reflecting away negative energy.



Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
