"Arsenopyrite is a Guardian Mirror. When you have something you want to protect use a crystal that forms in the monoclinic system. These Guardian crystals have an internal structure that is composed of parallelograms. The parallel structure of their crystalline lattice gives these crystals their power to protect us in the physical world and in the spiritual one. The Guardian talismans do not reveal their inner strength. These stones rarely, if ever, form transparent crystals. Rather, they hide their strength behind an opaque mask, obscuring the power they possess. In the physical world they are excellent aids in protecting your loved ones, your possessions, and your physical security. They are very useful in protecting houses and homes, property, and valuables. If you have prized possessions you want to guard and protect, use a Guardian crystal.
These crystals are excellent aids in knowing yourself, as they help reveal things that you consciously didn't realize. They reflect you as you are, not as you normally see yourself. They reveal that which is hidden.
They help strip away pretensions, reveal truths, and give you the ability to see things as they really are. They help you to avoid being deceived by appearances. Mirrors are particularly useful as self-help crystals. Often the first step in self-improvement is to understand how you got to where you are. We need to learn about ourselves before we can make meaningful change. The Mirror crystals are perfectly suited to help you with your efforts to really know yourself and your desires better. They make excellent meditation crystals." (David Dogan Beyo)
