Healing Properties of Pyrite

Top 3 Benefits of Pyrite

  1. Empowers you to take action to manifest your desires
  2. Increases vitality and stamina
  3. Supports healthy male sexual expression

Pyrite is a third-chakra stone, empowering the seat of the will and your power to act on your own behalf and for others. It gives you a physical boost to get moving and make your dreams real.

Pyrite for Confidence

Pyrite boosts your confidence, willpower, and assertiveness. It helps you channel the energy of a warrior, to protect yourself as well as protect others and to challenge whatever stands in your way.

If you struggle with maintaining boundaries around people who are not good for you, pyrite can help you learn to stand your ground.

Pyrite is a positive energy stone, encouraging an upbeat and constructive attitude toward problems. It is useful for people who struggle with anxiety, as it makes you more courageous and able to face your fears and let go of your worries.

Pyrite for Manifesting

Along with citrine and tiger eye, pyrite is one of the top manifestation stones. Manifesting is about creating what you desire–literally willing it into being. Pyrite helps you feel confident that wealth is your birthright and that everything you want can be yours.

Pyrite supports you to do what you need to do to get where you want to go. It stimulates your creativity and ambition, and is great for artists and students who need to persevere to complete their work.

Pyrite for Health

Pyrite boosts your physical energy and stamina. It increases your willpower and supports you to stick to plans to change negative health habits and establish better ones.

For men, it is helpful to support healthy and confident sexual expression.
