is a metaphysical name that was bestowed upon a stone that consists of a mixture of pyrite and magnetite. It exhibits a hardness of 6 on the Moh's scale and can be found in Arizona in the United States, where it is mined. It is striking in appearance, with its beautiful mixture of black and gold occurring in dramatic patterns.
Iron Pyrite is a strong stone to promote positive thinking and manifestation. It is a beautiful gold colour, and for hundreds of years it has been known as 'Fools Gold'.
Pyrite is regarded as a stone of protection and intellect. It is believed to enhance logic, analysis, mental stability, intelligence, creativity, psychic development and memory. It is also said to have a very grounding influence. Magnetite may bring yin/yang energies into balance and align the body's chakras. It is often used to ease or dispel anger, fear, grief, attachment and confusion. It may increase its wearer or keeper's energy levels and endurance, as well as help to relieve burdens.
