What is Pyrite?
Famous for its metallic gold shine, pyrite has been highlighted in jewelry and other adornments since the time of the ancient Greeks. More recently, jewelers in the Victorian era prized pyrite for its almost mirror-like luster, and even used it in place of diamonds in pave settings. Due to its association with gold, pyrite has come to be known for bringing luck and protection to those who possess it. At Mickey Lynn, we love the earthy brilliance of this stone in its natural form, and use it to empower and balance a wide variety of designs.
