The name Pyrite derives from the Greek pyr or pyros, meaning “fire” for its ability to emit sparks when pieces are struck together or against a hard surface. Pyrite is often called “Fool’s Gold.” Within its gleaming beauty is a stone of hidden fire, symbolizing the warmth and lasting presence of the sun and the ability to generate wealth by one’s own power.
It is masculine in nature, a stone of action, vitality and will, and taps into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion.
As a talisman, Pyrite is a unique protector, drawing energy from the Earth through the physical body and into the aura creating a defensive shield against negative energies, environmental pollutants, emotional attack and physical harm.
Wands are the traditional tool of shamans and healers. Being interested in crystal wands can indicate having had a past life as a healer and and bringing this wisdom with you into this incarnation. Wands can reunite you with your innate healing abilities.
Wands have the ability to focus energy tightly through their tip. The healing ability of wands is vastly expanded when programmed with intent. When using a wand, it is important consciously to allow universal healing energy to flow through your crown chakra, down your arm to the hand holding the wand and then into the wand where it is amplified and passed into yourself or your client. Using your own energy for this purpose is shortsighted and inefficient, as you will become weak and depleted and need healing yourself.
