Pyrite is an iron sulfide also known as “fool’s gold” due to its superficial resemblance to gold and it being much more common. The name pyrite comes from the greek word for fire, because you can produce a spark when hitting two pieces of pyrite together, or striking it against steel. Pyrite was used in marcasite jewelry, as it is similar to marcasite but more durable. Marcasite jewelry consists of small pieces of pyrite set into silver, and has been made since ancient Greece. It enjoyed a period of popularity in the Victorian era, and today’s marcasite jewelry tends to replicate these designs for a “vintage” look.
Pyrite strengthens and activates the third chakra, the seat of the will. The result is increased confidence, assertiveness, creativity, and the ability to do what it takes to create what you want.
Moonstone is a feldspar mineral gemstone that is pale and iridescent. In appearance it can be similar to some opals, although they are chemically different. Moonstone is a stone of feminine power and mystery. It assists in journeying inwardly and finding hidden truths in our unconscious and in past lives. It enhances intuition and encourages the wisdom and patience to trust Divine timing.
Opals can be many different colors, and their iridescence contains many colors; in contrast, moonstone is always milky-white and its iridescence is limited to gray, peach, and blue tones.
