Product Details

Fool's Gold, also known as Iron Pyrite, is shiny and breakable. Since this rock was often confused with real gold, it began to be called "Fool's Gold." Pyrite is often found crystallized in striated, four-sided cubes. However, pyrite is also found in 12-sided crystal structures called pyritohedrons. They are called pyritohedrons, becauses they are most often associated with pyrite. Sometimes pyrite crystals are often found having a combination of different structures.
