THE PYRITE CRYSTAL – for Luck, Success and Protection

One of my personal favourite crystals, and also one of the absolute shoppers’ favourite in MY JEWELLERY COLLECTION at Gemstones & Jewellery by GC  protects us against all forms of negative vibrations or energy, working on the physical, etheric, and emotional levels. It stimulates the intellect and enhances memory, helping to recall relevant information.

Pyrite is often called “Fool’s Gold,” though there is nothing foolish about this mineral. Within its gleaming beauty is a stone of hidden fire, one that can be sparked to life by striking it against metal or stone. An Earth element, it also resonates with Fire energy, symbolizing the warmth and lasting presence of the sun and the ability to generate wealth by one’s own power. It is masculine in nature, a stone of action, vitality and will, and taps into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion. Therefore it helps break through procrastination.

I have been wearing Pyrites for the past 5 years and I can vouch that the Pyrite is a unique protector, drawing energy from the Earth through the physical body and into the aura creating a defensive shield against negative energies, environmental pollutants, emotional attack and physical harm. It also helps support one with a spirit of boldness and assertive action when protecting others, the planet, or in standing up for important issues of community. It stimulates the Second and Third Chakras, enhancing will power and the ability to see behind facades to what is real.


Interesting Fact 

The name Pyrite  comes from the Greek word pyr, which means fire. This is because Pyrite creates sparks when it’s struck forcefully by iron. The richest Pyrite deposits are found in Peru, Spain, Japan, Australia, South Africa, Norway, Russia, Greece, Sweden, and the Czech Republic.

Pyrite a stone of manifestation

Pyrite is an excellent stone of manifestation, allowing one to draw high-frequency energy into the physical body and utilizing it to take action in creating abundance for one’s life. Its frequency stimulates the creative flow of ideas and concepts, and helps one embrace their innate abilities and potential.

Pyrite can also be used in body layouts for balancing polarities and creating harmony within the aura. It should be placed on the Third Chakra, in the hands, and at the Base Chakra to anchor one’s auric field firmly in the body, in proper alignment for optimal functioning of the spiritual self in the physical world.


Pyrite can also be used in grids, like in the picture above for manifestation of success in careet, abundance of wealth or good luck.

We often collaborate with our spiritual partner Maltese Mystic Yogi on these grids so feel free to follow her too for inspiration and/or guidance.
