pyrite 45kg Peru

Pyrite’s brassy yellow color has led it to be often mistaken for gold and as such is commonly known as “Fool’s Gold”. As an iron sulfide, it is a very common mineral type that historically has been used as a source of sulphur or as a way to start a fire.

This specimen is special due to the size of its crystals. Known as druzy pyrite, the minute crystals catch the light and send out an array of sparkles. Almost like a disco ball!
