This unusual example of Pyrite is a part of a Pyrite Sun, also known as a Miners Dollar that can only be found in Illinois, USA. They are a rare formation that is found in the 300 million year old shale just above a coal seam in the Sparta Mine. The "dollars" can range from a penny up to the size of a dinner plate! You will receive the exact Pyrite crystal shown in the photos.

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.
