What Is Pyrite Made From? 

This mineral is composed of iron and sulphur. Pyrite is often mistaken for gold due to its golden colouring and tendency to be found in the same rocks as gold.

Fool's Gold is thus a term that has been given to Pyrite.

What Is Pyrite Used For? 

Pyrite History

Pyrite was widely used in Ancient Mesoamerica, where the Mayans polished it to create mirrors. The reflective nature of the stone's surface ensured it was perfect for this role. 

The name for this stone was derived from the Greek word for fire ('Pyros'), and Pyrite was thus named because when struck against a hard surface or another Pyrite specimen, it gives off sparks.

This mineral has been found in Pre-Historic Burial Mounds, indicating that ancient humans used Pyrite to ignite fires before it was even named. 

Pyrite Crystal Healing Properties

Crystal healers believe Pyrite's connection to fire gives it an intense fiery energy that gifts its user with determination and vitality.

A stone for warriors, this mineral is said to ignite one's bravery and to encourage prosperity and will power in its user.

If looking for crystals to boost confidence, Pyrite is the perfect stone for you. 

This special stone is also believed to be an excellent stress relieving crystal. It protects its user and helps them to feel safe and secure by improving their self-esteem. 

Pyrite Ores

In the past, this mineral was an important ore for sulfur.

Although less commonly used nowadays as a sulfur ore, rocks containing Pyrite are still mined today as a way of procuring gold, which sometimes grows next to this mineral. 

Iron Pyrite also used to be an important iron ore, however it is now only used as a minor ore for iron because of the difficulty in extracting iron from it in comparison to other ores. 

Major iron ores today are now usually Hematite or Magnetite based, as iron oxide materials such as these are easier to process and extract iron from. 

Taking Care Of Pyrite Crystals

Please ensure you take care of your Pyrite crystal by regularly cleaning it under lukewarm water and carefully drying it with soft fabric. 

Pyrite measures 6 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, meaning it is a relatively hard and durable stone, but care should still be taken not to damage the surface.
