Science and Origin of Pyrite

Pyrite which is also known as fool's gold is an iron sulfide mineral that crystallizes in the form of botryoids, stalactites, cubes, and masses. This stone can act as a secondary mineral, constantly in conjunction with others such as lapis lazuli, turquoise, and quartz.

This stone was first recorded by Dioscorides in 50 AD. C. and is named after the Greek word "pyro", which means "fire". This name was chosen because of the sparks that arise when two parts collide. Pyrite was used in many ways in ancient civilizations and is still widely used today in making walls for houses.

Far from being just a “fool’s gold”, Pyrite has been found to be a firm favorite of ancient royalty. Its appearance in the high court dates back to the era of the Greek and Roman Empire. Archaeologists have found amulets, rings, relics, pins, and earrings from this time period made from this juicy mineral!
