Pyrite the most spiritual gift from Mother Earth

Pundit Roshan Singh

Pyrite is all about keeping you strong and stable and ever free from the shackles of control. It seems to have an intuitive quality that works to keep you out of harm’s way – both spiritually and emotionally. It is also a stone that inspires creativity and brings a dash of added sparkle. It encourages strength and leadership qualities, inviting you to step up to your own potential because your willpower and well-being are ever in check.

Physical Healing Properties

  • Builds strength and stamina
  • Helps the body fight viral infections

When it comes to physical healing, Pyrite is all about building up your strength and stamina. Remember, it’s a healing stone that leans on its masculine energy. Because of its love of protection, Pyrite is an incredible stone for cutting down on environmental pollution and the effects of this on the body. It’s said to be a useful tool in fighting viral infections, reducing fevers, and strengthening the immune system along with the respiratory system. Pyrite is said to improve lung health and can even be useful for those who suffer from asthma and other breath related ailments. It also keeps the blood in healthy flow and can stimulate the endocrine function and help with fertility issues.

Mental & Emotional Healing Properties

  • Boosts confidence levels
  • Helps overcome fears and anxieties 

When it comes to emotional strengthening this is where Pyrite truly lights a fire in the soul. Once we feel protected from outside elements it’s so much easier to feel safe and secure in one’s own skin. You will notice confidence levels starting to creep up, you will be able to bring out those natural leadership qualities you could have had stashed away, and you will easily be able to see beyond pretence and to live in the light of authenticity.

Pyrite seems to set the spirit on fire – in a good way! It rekindles any lost drive or distant passion and makes you feel like you are ready to embrace life once again. If you have been tangled up in depressive thoughts or residing in anxiety, Pyrite is here to help you step away from those thoughts and fears, to overcome all that is holding you back, and to take action to live the life you were born for.

Metaphysical Properties

  • Clears blockages in the Sacral and Solar Plexus chakra
  • Protects from negative energy

Positive energy runs rampant in the Pyrite stone. It’s all about clearing away cobwebs of negative energy and ensuring that you never fall into the darkness but instead feel strong and compelled to step into the light. To help facilitate this inner strength and za zoom for life, Pyrite works on strengthening and clearing out the solar plexus chakra and the sacral chakra. These are the chakras that hold our deep-set passion and energy for life, our sexual prowess, and our perfect love of creative thought and action. When they are  blocked we can feel as though our senses are deadened, but when awakened, we suddenly feel like we can soar.

Zodiac Birthstone

  • Well suited to Leos

When it comes to Pyrite’s destiny being written in the stars, the glimmering golden stone is known for being an amazing match for Leo. Like the lion’s roar, Leos are known for their fiery nature and even for being born leaders. All their traits of being strong, proud, and ever ready for action are beautifully complemented by the golden nature of Pyrite. In fact, Pyrite even works to fill in the gaps, helping those strong-headed Leos to stay protected when they may be veering over into aggressive territory. Its earthly nature balances out the fire element of the Leo, ensuring that no matter how far they leap, they stay grounded and ever-present.

Pyrite is a strong Feng Shui player thanks to those massive protective properties. If you want to keep your abode beautifully protected from any negative forces, place a piece of Pyrite by entryways to mop up any bad juju before it even gets the chance to seep in. Beyond the protective vibes, Pyrite isn’t just about blocking but is also savvy when it comes to funneling the right kind of energy into your home. It’s a great stone for attracting wealth, abundance, and lashings of good luck and for those reasons, pieces of Pyrite will do well when placed in workspaces, studios, and any spot where creative thinking takes place.


One of the best ways to bring out the energy of the Pyrite crystal is to wear it as an amulet or talisman. By picking a Pyrite Energy Bracelet or other jewelry style that places Pyrite close to the skin, you aren’t blocking this brilliant crystal from doing its essential work. By having direct skin contact, you are giving Pyrite the best chance for nourishing the body with its healing energy and you are getting the stone at the very top of its power game.

Other stones that work wonders when paired with the protective and healing powers of Pyrite include Obsidian. Obsidian is another of the great protectors in the crystal world. Born from the quick cooling of volcanic lava, this stone is sheer raw energy and this lends it a huge amount of natural power. Black Obsidian is one of the strongest stones that will work with Pyrite on protection, truth-seeking, and gorgeous grounding. Other stones include sunny Citrine with its potent positive energy, ever ready to lend a slant of light to those darker days. Carnelian also brings its ruby fire bright energy and can work in harmony with Pyrite to lift those lower chakras, tap into creativity, and stir up sexual or life force energy. Lapis Lazuli brings its mystical and higher vibrations to work well with Pyrite’s third eye connections. Fluorite is another crystal that brings extra powers to Pyrite, as this is another stone all about intuition, truth-seeking and having your finger on the pulse of positivity. Angelic Selenite, Calcite, and lucky Jade are two more stones that you could pair with Pyrite too.
