The awesome pyrite crystal is often called “fools gold” because it looks a lot like gold.
The way to tell that you have pyrite is that it is more brittle than gold.
A couple of hundred years ago it was used to help make sparks – for example in early weapons.
Another difference is that pyrite often forms into cubes or cuboids like the one in the picture above. Gold tends to form in blobby looking nuggets.
That’s why we think it’s an awesome pyrite crystal!
