Cornish Pyrite from Cornish Crystals & Minerals

Cornish Pyrite

Here's a treat - Pyrite from Cornwall is usually the laid back, 'done dreckly' style, in contrast to the Spanish cubes of conformity, yet here we have some distinct squares, and with a proper golden lustre.


Pyrite is named from the Greek word 'pyr' meaning 'fire', not so much for it's golden, fiery colour, but because it can create a spark, being iron based.  Pyrite is an iron sulphide, with a reputation to be known as fool's gold because of its metallic glint. The pure cubes form under perfect growing conditions, not quite achieved by the Cornish pyrite, which is charismatically knobbly.

Key Healing Properties:-  The strong cubes of Pyrite enhance masculine energy and physical vitality.  Pyrite is useful in the workplace as a talisman for growth and prosperity and for tempering an irascible temperament or low self-esteem.  Pyrite can also give you a kickstart and support useful when beginning an exercise plan.
