Pyrite Crystal Heart
Pyrite is an iron sulfide mineral. The name pyrite is derived from the Greek word for fire. Pyrite’s shiny metallic appearance has earned it the nickname “fool’s gold.” The ancient Incas used Pyrite as mirrors. It is found all over the world, but important deposits are in Italy, Spain, and Peru. Pyrite is said to enhance willpower, helping one to overcome bad habits. Look closely, this beautiful one of a kind egg carved specimen from Peru has interesting crevices filled with natural perfect cubic forms.
The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral, and intellectual core of human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human soul, the word "heart" continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul, and stylized depictions of hearts are used as prevalent symbols representing love, friendship and an openhearted attitude, which many believe heightens the metaphysical effects of the stone.
