Pyrite is also known as “fool’s gold” because of its great similarity to the precious metal. Its name comes from the Greek word “pyr” which means fire, since when hitting it with any other mineral it makes sparks fly.

Notice: There are unscrupulous Peruvian Peruvian companies that sell Pyrite that comes from Trujillo. This particular pyrite contains a lot of arsenic and is highly toxic. Please be sure to avoid purchasing pyrite from this location or other unfamiliar places. The Pyrite that is sold worldwide for energy and healing purposes comes from the Huanzala Mine in Peru. Gemrock Peru has an exclusive contract for the worldwide distribution of this stone. If you want to make sure that your pyrite is not only healthy but also pure, we recommend buying only pyrite from Huanzala. Only Pyrite products from Gemrock Peru come with an official “certificate of origin” that proves their origin from Huanzala.
