Pyrite has long been valued as a strong protection stone that shields the wearer from negative energy as well as environmental pollutants. Thus, this stone helps promote physical well-being as well. Stimulating the second and third chakras, pyrite enhances the strength of mind and willpower. Pyrite is also known as fool's gold and helps manifest wealth. This is a very flashy gold piece of pyrite that has been smoothly polished and expertly carved into a lion's face. It hangs on an 18" gold-filled chain.
