This is a lovely small Iron Pyrite cube from Spain, naturally formed in matrix. Although this piece may look like the Iron Pyrite cube has been shaped and glued into the rock, it actually forms like this completely naturally.
Historically, Pyrite was considered a magic stone and a stone of protection. It is still used to shield against negative energy on many levels. As the crystals form cubically, pyrite makes a powerful grounding stone (the cube being a symbol of Earth), giving the wearer or holder a sense of containment. Many believe it bestows the blessing of abundance.
Each cube measures approx. 7mm.
