Pyrite: Believed to promote communication between the conscious and subconscious minds, the Inca used large slabs of polished pyrite as mirrors and believed that the stone held divine powers. Used in jewelry in ancient Greece and Rome, the name pyrite is derived from the Greek pyr, meaning “fire”, referring to the sparks made when pyrite strikes metal. Thus, pyrite is known as the Stone of Hidden Fire, and resonates with warming fire energy and spirit of boldness and assertive action. It is masculine stone by nature; a stone of action, vitality and will it taps into one’s abilities and potential and stimulates the flow of ideas, bringing confidence and the persistence to carry tasks through to completion. Also known as Fool’s Gold because miners mistook this mineral for gold during the California Gold Rush.
