Pyrite, also known as "fool's gold" is usually a brass-yellow colour with a gold-like metallic lustre. Its name is derived from the Greek word for fire as when its pieces are struck together or against a hard surface, it has the ability to emit sparks. Pyrite is known as a protective, shielding stone. It brings confidence and persistence to carry things through to completion and it shields against negative energies.
Considering its gold-like appearance, pyrite is a versatile stone that is beautiful alone or next to many stones. It is an excellent choice for your jewellery making creation.
