This mineral's metallic luster and pale silver-metallic hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool's gold. This particular pyrite is from Peru. I have seen this mineral crushed and used in jewelry and it looks amazing! This material is perfect for small voids or small accents, with unlimited applications. Each of our products are handpicked to ensure superior quality (removal of host rock or other naturally occurring minerals).

This listing is for customers that need larger amounts of pyrite - 4 ounces or 1 pound.

Material Size and Quality:
Medium - material is considered to be medium to fine (sand), ranging between 2 millimeters to 0.25 millimeters (between sieves #10 - #60).

This product is NOT man-made, mixed with resin, or stabilized. Please be careful when buying crushed mineral since most products have a caveat in fine writing that states that this stone might be man-made, mixed with resin, or is made from a composite (generally, plain stone mixed with a dyed resin to make the product seem authentic and is allowed to be called natural). Stone authenticity is extremely important to all artisans; therefore, we strive to validate the source of all our minerals before they are processed and sieved.

As with any naturally occurring minerals, there can be some matrix or host rock mixed in with the product. However, we hand pick each unit to ensure that our product is of the highest quality. Please see product images for color, size, and quality. Picture taken in full sun - material is dry.
