Pyrite: color and transparency
Pyrite offers an appearance confusingly similar to gold. But the appealing stone is much harder than the precious metal and can hardly be shaped like this. Stroking a pyrite across a white sheet of paper leaves a black line. Other varieties of beautiful pyrite are bravoite, hengleinite and gelpyrite.
Pyrite: Cleanse, discharge and charge
The beautiful pyrite from our range can be discharged via hematite and charged using the rock crystal. This should happen at regular intervals every four weeks after purchase. Due to its composition, pyrite is highly sensitive to acids. For this reason, it should not be treated with appropriate cleaning agents, otherwise it may lose its attractive shine after ordering. Some components of pyrite are toxic, so it should never be used to make gemstone water!
