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. Pyrite is a protective, shielding #stone and is excellent to wear or carry as an amulet to deflect harm and danger. It guards ongoing control, criticism and manipulation by a partner, parent or employer, lending the power to resist without becoming angry or upset, changing the #balance of power. A piece of pyrite in the home or workplace energizes the area around it and imparts an immediate increase in #vitality. It overcomes intellectual fatigue due to overwork and tiredness of the nervous system by stimulating blood flow to the brain, increasing mental #clarity, focus, and recall.
