The shape of the stones and the design of this short necklace is bold and powerful; created for men but can be suitable for some women as well. Pyrite’s bright golden metallic luster has a gleaming beauty and is often called “Fool’s Gold”, though there is nothing foolish about this mineral. Pyrite comes from the Greek work “Pyr” which means “fire”; it was given its name because it can produce the sparks needed to actually strike a fire if brought into contact with metal. The hard rocky texture of the Pyrite is durable and fit to wear every day; the necklace looks even more stunning in combination with the matching bracelet. As a talisman Pyrite is a unique protector, drawing energy from the earth through the physical body and into your aura blocking out negativity from various sources; environmental pollutants, emotional attack and physical harm. Pyrite is connected to the fire element and is masculine in nature; a stone of action, vitality and will, and taps into your abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion. It stimulates the Second and Third Chakras, enhancing will power and the ability to see behind facades to what is real.
