THE SCIENCE

Pyrite is an Iron Sulfide, and can be a stunning natural mineral. Because of its brassy metallic luster, it is often referred to as “fool's gold.” Found all over the world, pyrite takes many different forms, from blobby concretions to naturally cubic crystals. 

THE STORY

This genuine pyrite sphere features natural indentations, showcasing the mineral's captivating glitter. Pyrite has been prized by humans for thousands of years: the Inca used it as a mirrored surface and Ancient Greeks used it as a flint to spark fire. It still has the ability to spark wonder. Add this showpiece to your mineral collection or wunderkammer.
