Both earth and fire energies are captured within the Pyrite stone; a perfect tool to assist in balancing (or activating) the root or base chakra. Pyrite helps one to communicate more openly and honestly, providing both emotional and physical protection. If you are indecisive, or unsure about something, carry a Pyrite with you as a touchstone to help boost your self confidence. The reflective qualities of the stone make it a wonderful meditation or divination tool... just as the ancient Inca's used it.
Pyrite increases physical stamina, stimulates the intellect and helps to transform thought into intelligent action. It is a wonderful stone for use in wealth magic or assisting in manifestation of needed energies. An excellent shield-stone, Pyrite removes negativity from the aura to help one concentrate.
