Pyrite is a sparkling stone. Its name comes from the Greek language and is translated as "firestone" because if was believed to contain fire in its core. Pyrite is also known as "Fools Gold" because it was often mistaken by gold miners for real gold during the gold rush of the 1840s in the U.S. Many inexperienced miners believed that they hit the mother lode only to become sadly disappointed in its value.
Pyrite is known as a stone of protection, prosperity, power, and magic. It also serves as an energy shield that deflects and destroys invading forms of energy and pollutants.
