Pyrite means flint. If you hit it, it gives off sparks and thanks to it you can kindle fire (also cleansing inside). It is a warming stone that invites us to self-knowledge by revealing our light but also our dark character traits. For me, pyrite symbolizes the chance to anchor the light from the highest source in one's own personality and on the material level. If we let the light of truth shine in us, there is an opportunity for honesty and change. As such, pyrite is a powerful protective stone that reveals negative aspects, even if we tend to ignore them because they seem too hurtful or too strenuous. By anchoring light, it protects against darkness and oppression. On a physical level, pyrite can also clear up unclear symptoms by bringing the causal disease to light. Pyrite suns also have a pain-relieving effect.
