Pyrite is rich and charmed; it represents wealth and prosperity. Pyrite is under the astrological influence of Gemini. With an aesthetic uncannily similar to gold, pyrite has traditionally been a favorite tool in the repertoire of some of history's most cunning tricksters. Commonly called fool's gold, in centuries since past, pyrite was loaded into chests and passed off as counterfeit gold bullion by unscrupulous merchants, outright pirates, and other questionably enterprising individuals with an eye for opportunity. In a similar vein, pyrite was strategically planted in depleted gold mines in order to pass off the properties as a gold-rich investment, allowing mine owners to cash out on otherwise useless land. Despite pyrite's gold-like hue, it is harder and typically lighter than its better known counterpart, as well as being more resistant to scratching and damage to its surface. Metaphysically, pyrite is surrounded by an energetic aura that attracts success and wealth while dispelling negativity and jealousy.
