DVH Rare Pyrite in Slate Heart Cabochon Black Gold 41x37x7 (2625)

$ 138.98

I hand cut this piece using rare pyrite in slate from Brazil.  Dimensions in the title in millimeters.  While pyrite itself is not rare, finding jewelry grade pyrite on lovely black slate IS very rare and sought after!  I'm always looking for the exotic druzys and natural surface stones, especially when I'm shopping in Tucson at the international gem & mineral shows.  I have seen very few pieces of druzy pyrite on slate over the last 40 years but only in finished pieces done by German cutters from Idar Oberstein.  I never saw the rough.  Then in 2019 I was cruising through one of the newer shows and there was a Brazilian dealer with a few tables. They had one small pile of this stuff on a table and next to that a barrel of it.  I went through the pile AND the barrel and was only able to find 12 fist size pieces of jewelry quality rough and I bought them all!  Didn't get back to that show this year so don't know if they had anymore.  I just did a search for pyrite slate on the two biggest online stone marketplaces and I only got 24 results on eBay and 56 on Etsy, TOTAL. 

Search for the keywords pyrite slate and compare!  You WON'T find other cabs or bead pendants like this and I don't know if I'll ever get more rough.  That's why this "simple pyrite" is priced the way it is.

Here is some information on the metaphysical properties of pyrite that I found on the Shimmerlings website, which is a great resource for that kind of stuff!  "Pyrite helps one to communicate more openly and honestly,  providing both emotional and physical protection. If you are indecisive, or unsure about something, carry a pyrite with you as a touchstone to help boost your self confidence. The reflective qualities of the stone make it a wonderful meditation or divination tool….just as the ancient Inca’s used it."

"Pyrite increases physical stamina, stimulates the intellect and helps to transform thought into intelligent action. It is a wonderful stone for use in wealth magic or assisting in manifestation of needed energies. An excellent shield-stone, pyrite removes negativity from  the aura to help one concentrate."
