The Huanzala Mine of Peru has produced some of the world's finest pyrites. This large part polished Iron Pyrite Sphere is a bright and lustrous example, exhibiting a mass of brass-yellow, intergrown pyritohedrons. It is ideal for display, gifting or healing.
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.
