Also called “Fools’ Gold”, Pyrite has been used since pre-history. Its’ name from Greek “pyr”, meaning fire, was believed to stem from its’ ability to emit sparks if hit by an iron tool. Used in flint locks for the first firearms, later being replaced by a harder quartz variety flint. Pyritehas a brass-yellow colour and metallic lustre similar to gold. Pyrite often occurs in well-formed crystals in the shape of cubes, octahedrons (8 faces/sides), or pyritohedrons (pentagons), which often have striated faces (ridges, furrows or linear marks), and occasionally as Pyrite Suns (round and flat), or aggregates (spheres).
