Golden Pyrite Beads

Its metallic luster and golden hue have earned golden pyrite (iron sulfide) the nickname “Fool's Gold”, as many miners have mistaken it for the real thing. In fact, very small quantities of actual gold are sometimes found in pyrite. Pyrite is quite easy to distinguish from true gold, as it is much lighter and harder. The name of this gemstone comes from the Greek word “pyr”, meaning “fire”, as pyrite emits sparks when struck by steel.

Our golden pyrite beads may be Fool’s Gold, but you’re no fool if you adore them! This stone is substantial and earthy, and rich looking.

More About Golden Pyrite

Pyrite is also often confused with the mineral Marcasite. Marcasite is a polymorph of pyrite, which means it has the same chemical formula (iron sulfide) as pyrite, but a different molecular structure.
