Vibrates to the number 8, Astrological sign of Leo

Marcasite is identical in chemical composition to Pyrite and possesses the same properties  The crystalline forms of the mineral exhibit the following additional properties:

Marcasite shows us a view of ourselves from an outside perspective so we can gain insight into ways of  painlessly correcting the qualities within ourselves which need healing; when we use this stone, we sometimes gain these insights by looking at ourselves in a different way than usual.  It helps us to make these changes easily, and gives us reminders of any uncorrected and unwanted personal traits.  It can show us how we may appear dull to others and encourages us to “shine”.  It stimulates and illumines the senses and the intellect, softening our expressiveness and helping us to eliminate both the use of rash words and actions of impatience.  Marcasite represents spiritual development, providing for prosperity by eliminating starvation of the spirit.


These crystalline Marcasite fossil nodules are hand harvested from Alden, New York.  They were part of a private collection and once they are gone, I may not be able to get any more.

These fossils were found in shale from the Devonian period in the Paleozoic age, which began about 400 million years ago and lasted about 60 million years.  The shale formed in a shallow, somewhat poisonous, sea (most likely hydrogen sulfide, which precipitated iron to form the Marcasite nodules).  The fossils are relatively small as a result.

The fossil is a preserved remnant of the past.  Most fossils are organic matter which has transformed to stone.  In addition to the qualities listed for the mineral which assists in the fossilization process, the following properties apply.

In ancient times, fossils were believed to have been stony casts of that which was once alive and which were grown in the Earth from seeds descendent form the realms of the stars.  These gifts from the stars were used to magnify telepathic communication between our present reality and past worlds, as well as the current other worlds.

With fossils, we  can heighten our accomplishments in business.  We can manifest quality and excellence in our world.  We can free ourselves from  old programming and schedules, and be open and receptive to, and perceptive of, fresh innovative forces.
