Pyrite, an iron sulfide, is characterized by its metallic luster and brass to yellow hue that have earned it the nickname “fool’s gold.” Pyrite is actually lighter in color than gold as well as harder and more brittle. It derives its real name from the Greek “pyrites,” meaning “of fire,” as it creates sparks when struck on steel. It is found around the world in many unusual natural formations including globes, cubes, flat radial disks and dodecahedral crystals with twelve pentagonal facets.
