Pyrite is commonly known as Fool’s Gold, due to its metallic brassy colour. It gets its name from the Greek Pyr, which means fire; due to the fact that it emits sparks when struck by iron. For this reason, it has been used since ancient times as a firestarting crystal. It has also been popular in jewellery for thousands of years due to it’s pretty golden appearance. Pyrite can be found in a few different crystal forms, multisided golden clusters commonly called Chispas, flat crystal forms called Pyrite Suns, and beautiful golden cubes most commonly found in Navajun, Spain.
