Pyrite has long been valued as a strong protection stone that shields the wearer from negative energy as well as environmental pollutants.
Thus, this stone helps promote physical well-being as well. Stimulating the second and third chakras, pyrite enhances strength of mind and willpower. Pyrite is also sometimes considered to be lucky, attracting wealth and abundance.
Though not a birthstone, pyrite is most commonly associated with the zodiac sign of Leo.
Pyrite gemstones are fairly easy stones to keep clean. Simply use lukewarm soapy water and rinse.
A soft cloth can also be used to restore luster, but it is not recommended to use anything that could leave scratches on the somewhat brittle surface of the stone. Do not steam, boil or clean in an ultrasonic machine.
If cleaning pyrite jewelry with water, be sure to thoroughly dry any and all metal settings so as to prevent oxidation.
Store pyrite stones and jewelry away from other materials to avoid marring the surface of the pyrite or causing scratches on less-hard materials.
