These tumbled iron pyrite stones are formed into a pleasing, soft shape with rounded edges which can be used for massage, as a type of worry stone, Feng Shui element, or as a simple accent on your desk. Shaped in Peru from a large chunk of pyrite, the cavities that are left unshaped allow the natural pyrite crystal to sparkle in the light. Iron Pyrite has a warm yellow color, it's metallic, and it glitters and sparkles like gold, which is why it's commonly called "fool's gold."
Color: Metallic brassy-gold to silvery-gold
Dimensions: Approximately 1.25" x 1.25" x 0.5"
Mineralogy: Iron pyrite is an iron disulfide which often includes substantial amounts of nickel, cobalt, or arsenic. Iron pyrite is the most abundant of the sulfide minerals and occurs in many types of rocks and hydrothermal veins. It is often mistaken for gold and has earned the name “Fools Gold”, though iron pyrite is easily distinguishable from gold due to its hardness, brightness, and lower density.
Metaphysical Properties: Pyrite encourages connection between the conscious and subconscious mind as well as supports memory, psychic development and strength of will. Pyrite is also extremely protective. It acts as an energetic shield against all negativity. It is a great stone to work with to clear abundance blocks. Pyrite cultivates wealth, happiness and good luck.
