Pyrite


Geology and History


Pyrite is the most common of the sulfide minerals.  This mineral’s metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue gives it a strong resemblance to gold.  This characteristic brought Pyrite its nickname is Fool’s Gold.  The name Pyrite is derived from the Greek word meaning “of fire” or “in fire”.

Pyrite is usually found with other sulfides or oxides in Quartz veins, sedimentary rock, and metamorphic rock, as well as in coal beds and as a replacement mineral in fossils.  Pyrite is sometimes found in association with small quantities of god.  Gold and arsenic occur as a coupled substitution in the pyrite structure.  Arsenopyrite is toxic and should be handled with care.  Pyrite usually forms cuboid crystals, sometimes forming framboids.  Under certain circumstances T-Shaped crystals form.  Pyrite can also form dodecahedral crystals.
