M304 Pyrite

M304 Pyrite


Here is something different for the mineral collector.  This is a very nice, bright Yellow Pyrite with some what appears to be Galena mixed with creamy colored crystals all on matrix.  It measures 3 7/8″ x 3″ x 1 3/4″ and does not have any polish.  A really neat, unique mineral to add to your collection.

Pyrite, or Iron Pyrite, is an Iron sulfide with isometric Crystals that usually appear as cubes.  It is brittle and can break or powder easily.  Its metallic luster and brass yellow hue have earned it the nickname of “fool’s gold” due to many miners mistaken it for the real thing.  Ironically, small quantities of actual gold are sometimes found in Pyrite.  It is the most common of the sulfide minerals and is usually found with other sulfides or oxides in Quartz veins, sedimentary or metamorphic rocks.
