The mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, also known as fool's gold, is an iron sulfide with the chemical formula FeS2. This mineral's metallic luster & pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool's gold.
This is an awesome speciment of pyrite from Navajun, Spain! I love the simplicity of the cubic simitry of pyrite clusters... This one in particular is simply beautiful.
Pyrite is famously used for its metaphysical properties. Pyrite energy is known for empowering the spirit & helping people overcome their fears. Pyrite is also an excellent stone for manifestation. It draws high-frequency energy into the physical body & stimulates creative flow.
