PYRITE OCTAHEDRAL CRYSTALS
Rare to find this geometric form of PYRITE OCTAHEDRAL CRYSTALS. A great little cluster for the collector showing another formation of this popular metal. The mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, also known as fool’s gold, is an iron sulfide which has the chemical formula FeS2. This mineral’s metallic luster and pale brass yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool’s gold.
