Pyrite has long been valued as a strong protection stone that shields the wearer from negative energy and environmental pollutants. Thus, this stone helps promote physical well-being as well. Stimulating the second and third chakras, pyrite enhances the strength of mind and willpower.
Treasured in many ancient civilizations, the Pyrite crystal stone comes from the Greek word ‘ pry,’ which means fire. This fiery stone manifests male energy, that burning cauldron of passion that exists deep within the third eye chakra. Harnessing masculine energy, the pyrite crystal symbolizes abundance and prosperity, making it an excellent addition to your office or workspace decor. Gaze upon the stone and remember your intention and its powerful healing properties. Whether it's to increase focus or to simply give you an energetic boost, the Pyrite crystal stone gives you the strength and determination you need to take on challenging tasks.
Pyrite is also a good stone for treating bronchitis and asthma. Pyrite should not be exposed to water, moisture, or intense sun. It should be cleansed (Don't use water or sunlight) once a month in a closed container with tumbled Hematite. Charging of Pyrite should be done in a bowl of previously charged Rock crystal.
In terms of energetics, from my experience, direct sunlight is energetically too stimulating for pyrite. The power of pyrite is that it allows you to feel grounded while also stimulating your manifesting power, which is fantastic for manifesting your dreams in the physical world. Adding the sun’s energy to this will be too stimulating for your energy, and you could feel burnt out before you even begin.
Along the same lines as avoiding sunlight, excessive heat can cause damage to your pyrite. For as hard as pyrite is on the Mohs hardness scale, it is pretty brittle and can even be pulverized down into a powder. Too much heat can crack your pyrite or cause it to become flakey.
Also, note that pyrite is mostly made of iron, a metal. Metals absorb heat and can cause burns if they get too hot and touch the skin.
