Pyrite has been in use by humans for at least 30,000 years. Pyrite is easily polished and in the past it has been used for making many reflective surfaces, including mirrors. It can be found alone or among deposits of quartz and other precious stones; pyrite often lends these other crystals their distinctive golden flecks, such as those found in lapis lazuli, praziolite and schorl. Pyrite has been associated with the Third or Solar Plexus Chakra, the Zodiac signs of Leo and Aries, the element of Earth and the Planets of Mars and Pluto.
Pyrite has been used as a protective amulet for millennia, both from animal attacks and from negative influences. Its reflective surface was thought to send evil energies back to their source. Pyrite is considered a protective talisman to firefighters, blacksmiths, bakers and builders.
