1. Sunlight

Pyrite is associated with the fire element.


This stone is associated with courage, determination, and high energy. 

It is vital to mention that Pyrite is linked to the Solar Plexus chakra, which means that the energy radiated by this stone works on healing, balancing, and activating everything related to personal power, strength, confidence, and strong will.

So, charging this stone via solar energy is a suitable and effective way to replenish the empowering and encouraging transmitted energies of Pyrite, and that is because the energetic sun rays are perfectly and harmoniously aligned with the kind of vibrations emitted by the Pyrite stone.

Therefore, to replenish and revive the vibration of your Pyrite put the crystal in a place where there is lots of sunshine, and let it soak the energizing beaming rays for about 2 to 3 hours.

2. Earth energy

So, choosing the Earth energy charging option is an adequate step to reload the grounding frequencies of Pyrite so you can get it in touch with the energies of stability, safety, and vitality that are transmitted by the Pyrite gem.

Therefore, to charge your golden gem via the Earth energy place your stone in a location where there are lots of vegetation, trees, and flowers.

If you have a plant pot or a garden you can even bury the Pyrite stone in the soil for 12 hours or for the whole day.

Just remember to mark the exact location where you put your stone to not miss the spot.

If you don’t have a lot of time in your hands, this charging option is ideal.

Sage smoke

Begin first by airing your space by opening your windows.

Then, ignite the tip of your sage stick and do a circular motion using the fume generated by the sage for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Envision that the smoke created by the sage stick is supplying your stone with the pure positive energy of cleanliness, prosperity, power, and optimism.

4. Intentions

Your intentions are key to readjust the energies transmitted by your crystals.


Getting in touch with your intentions and knowing the exact things that you want to manifest or the sensations that you desire to reach are primordial steps to attract everything that you need.

So, declaring your intentions is a fantastic way to charge your Pyrite crystal with your aims and let the stone transmit back to you the precise vibrations that will aid you to achieve your aspirations.

Feel that you are happy now, feel that you are loved now, feel that you are prosperous nows.
