Iron Pyrite or Fool's Gold is an abundant mineral that has a metallic luster and a close resemblance to gold. The crystals often grow in a cubic fashion, however Pyrite can grow in many different forms. Large deposits are found in Virginia and Spain. Pyrite is a strong protecting stone that can shield the user from negative energy. It is used to stimulate the solar plexus and the sacral chakras. It will aid with creating perfect love and creative thoughts and action. This sphere is polished, however some of the crystal structure is still raw and untouched, leaving large crystal points in the center. It is naturally pitted from the crystal growth and has a lovely lusterful polish to finish it. This sphere comes with a small sphere stand, and can be used as a mantle piece. It is small enough to hold in your hand while you meditate.
