Pyrite, which is iron sulfide, has been easily confused with gold. Hence, the nickname, Fool's Gold. It gets its name from the Greek pyr meaning fire because it gives off sparks when hit with a metal.
It is believed that possession of pyrite attracts money. Some use Pyrite to stimulate the intellect and enhance recall of information. Good for those of us who can be forgetful.
No two pieces are alike. Each one will slightly vary in size, shape and colour. We carry sizes 0 through 3, the higher the number the larger the size - not all items are available in all sizes. If you have specific wishes about the general size of these treasures or how many to purchase to fill a display, it is recommended that you speak to your account manager.
