Pyrite is a mineral that is commonly known as "fool's gold" due to its metallic yellow-gold appearance. It is composed of iron sulfide and has a high density, making it a popular mineral for collectors and for industrial use. Pyrite is found in various parts of the world, including the United States, Spain, Peru, and Italy. It is often used as a source of sulfur for the production of sulfuric acid and in the manufacturing of iron and steel. In addition to its industrial uses, pyrite is also a popular mineral in the field of crystal healing and energy work. It is believed to have protective and grounding properties that can help dispel negative energy and promote clarity of thought. However, it should be noted that pyrite can also be hazardous to handle due to the presence of sulfur and should be used with caution.
