Pyrite is a mineral that is often referred to as “fool’s gold” because of its golden appearance. However, pyrite is actually a very powerful crystal with a variety of properties.
Pyrite is an iron sulphide mineral with the chemical formula FeS2. It is a cubic crystal system and has a metallic lustre. It can be found in a variety of colours from brassy yellow to gold, and bronze and is also often found alongside other minerals such as quartz, galena and calcite.

Pyrite is a relatively safe crystal, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, pyrite can be brittle, so it is important to handle it with care. Secondly, pyrite should not be worn in the shower or bath as it can react with water. Finally, it should not be exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as this can cause its beautiful colour to fade.
