Pyrite or The Fire Stone has its name because of the sparks that are produced at hitting them, being used in the palaeolithic age to make fire.
It is a sulphide class mineral, the clusters having a predominant hydrothermal origin, esferoidal, globular but also the perfect cube have a sedimentary origin. The Pyrite Suns have a metamorphic origin.
Spiritually pyrite stimulates self knowledge . It faces us with our own character showing us the dark side of it as well as the positive one.
Subconsciously it unveils the secrets that were hidden, offering this way the opportunity to show sincerity and frankness.
Mentally helps clarify determinate situations in life, facilitating this way necessary changes.
Physically it is a clarifier of confusion in certain confusing diagnostics , especially the ” pyrite suns” having a pain relieving effect.
Application: Pyrite can be in direct contact with the skin for short periods of time ,as it will produce iron sulphur, especially in contact with sweat and it will irritate the skin and ruin the clothes . It is better to use it as a meditation stone or decorative stone for the room. In case of still wanting to wear such a stone there are products as clear protective liquids that you can paint on them to be safe for use.
