Year of the Dog is an earth year. Everyone can use PYRITE to align with earth, fire and metal! Pyrite is about all 3 of those! And the element of metal is good for wealth related luck (for you Las Vegas lovers!)
A bit about Pyrite…
Rainbow Pyrite is the trade name for an iridescent form of ‘pyrite druzy’. Druzy is a term used to describe gemstones in the form of encrustations or clusters of minute crystals coating a matrix. Druzy gemstones are actually relatively rare, especially in non-quartz species. Rainbow pyrite is a relatively recent discovery and so far, it has only been found in one location in the world – Russia. Rainbow pyrite is famed for its rainbow-like iridescence, caused by differential refraction and diffraction of light. Top quality materials can shimmer with all colors of the rainbow, including gold, green, pink and blue.
The name pyrite is derived from ‘pyr’, the Greek word for ‘fire’, as it is known to produce sparks when struck by steel or flint. Only pyrite that exhibits iridescence is traded as rainbow pyrite.
Rainbow pyrite is not known to be treated or enhanced in any way.
Rainbow pyrite is known as a stone of manifestation.
Pyrite is a stone of positivity that is great to attract wealth and abundance! Helps to increase willpower, motivation and my favorite: PERSONAL POWER!
