Because of its lustrous brilliance, Pyrite has been associated with the Sun and regarded as a “Firestone” for thousands of years. In the days of hellenistic Greece when the Doctrine of Signatures was the bleeding edge of medicine, and doctors were (by nature) alchemists and astrologers, the Sun was associated with any metal that was golden in hue. In modern day alchemy, Pyrite is still connected to the Sun, and is currently being proposed as a material to line the photovoltaic cells of solar panels. There is a recent proposal to make thin film photovoltaic cells completely out of Pyrite. This metal also has a commercial use in Energizer batteries, as a cathode material. This crystal also excels with metaphysical work around energy levels and working with frazzled nerves as an energetic circuit connector.
WHAT ARE THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF PYRITE?
Pyrite is one of the best crystals to work with if you are mindfully meditating on your sense of value and self-worth. This magical mineral can also help to attract wealth and abundant prosperity. If these are your intentions, you can place your sample in the left-most corner of your home, which is the prosperity section of the Feng Shui map.
The gold on the outside doesn't always represent the treasure within. Even if you're not built the same as others in your life, your value and sense of self-agency is real, even if it appears to be quite different. It's often our imperfections that help us to navigate in our own distinctive ways. Every human has gold inside; this unique treasure is what makes us human.
