Pyrite is an incredibly beautiful and powerful crystal. I adore the way it sparkles without any sunlight. Any rock shop or metaphysical store will have a variety in stock. Pyrite carved into spheres and hearts always catch my eye. But you can get small tumbled or rough pieces easily.
My little pieces are great, but I love having a rough specimen that is big and brilliant. This crystal is also effortlessly found in the form of cabochons and beads. Which makes pyrite jewelry quite popular as well.
Its famous metallic gold color has earned it the nickname “fool’s gold.” That twinkle we love so much could easily look like the shiny gold to the untrained eye. Unfortunately, many businesses have taken advantage of this fact. It may not be as rare as real gold, but it’s just as valuable energetically. And I don’t even need to mention the difference in affordability!
Fool’s Gold Crystal
Pyrite was named after the Greek word pyr which means fire. Ancient people learned that sparks will fly when two pieces are struck together or against a hard surface. Passions run wild with this crystal, as it promotes masculine-type energy.
Throughout time, this crystal has been used maliciously by gold miners and sellers. People who didn’t know any better would often be tricked into thinking they had purchased real gold. When really, it was fool’s gold. Old mining companies would regularly plant pyrite chunks towards the front of their mines. Hiding the fact that they were tapped out of real gold.
When consumers caught onto the “fool’s gold” phenomenon, they quickly spread the word around. Everyone was on the look-out for pyrite disguised as gold.
For the most part, these types of practices are nonexistent in the industry today. Most people are now aware of what real gold looks and feels. If you were to examine the two side by side, you would notice that gold is more yellow in hue.
Pyrite looks a little more industrial, with a slightly darker hue. Always purchase from a reputable business. That way, you’ll know you’re actually getting what you’ve paid for.
