Pyrite Cubes “Size #2” Single Piece
Gold and pyrite both have a brilliant metallic luster but are different tones of yellow. Gold is golden to silvery yellow, whereas pyrite is a pale to medium brassy yellow that sometimes tarnishes.
The name pyrite comes from the Greek word pyr meaning flame, since pyrite emits sparks when it’s struck by steel. Even during the prehistoric times pyrite has been used to start fires.
