Pyrite - golden
Here you find our assortment of pyrite beads ranging from nuggets to cubes and from faceted to round beads. Pyrite is also known as iron pyrite or fool's gold. It is a compound of iron and sulfur (FeS2) and can be found all over the globe. Pyrite is one of the harder minerals, its colour is a brass-like yellow or silver with a metallic shine. When heated, the mineral becomes a bit magnetic but it is neither luminous nor radioactive.
