The vibration offers us strength and the by harmonising our Solar Plexus Chakra it allows us to use our willpower when it is needed to overcome struggles rather than allowing the struggles to overcome us. Polarities exist but if we get caught in extremes, this can overwhelm us. Pyrite assists in helping us find the middle ground through facilitation of a higher perspective; freeing us from extremes.
The vibration of pyrite is uplifting and its warm metallic shine brings about feelings of happiness and encourages us to love openly, giving and receiving joyously.

Archaeological evidence reveals that humans have valued Pyrite for millennia, and small pieces have been found in numerous prehistoric burial sites. Pyrite’s name comes from the Greek word ‘pyr’, meaning fire because when struck with iron, Pyrite will emit sparks. During the Mesoamerican Classic period (CE 250-900), both the Mayans and the Aztecs used Pyrite to create mirrors. Most Pyrite mirrors were used as part of the ceremonial dress of priests and noblemen, typically worn on the back or belt. Larger mosaic mirrors were placed in temples or royal tombs. Pyrite mirrors likely symbolised noble lineage. Today Pyrite has lost much of its glamour and is often dismissed as “Fool’s Gold.” The nickname refers to a common mishap during 19th century gold rushes in which uneducated miners believed they had struck gold when they had actually found Pyrite.
