Pyrite, also called iron pyrite or fool's gold, is a naturally occurring iron disulfide mineral. The name comes from the Greek word pyr, “fire,” because pyrite emits sparks when struck by metal. Pyrite is called fool's gold because its color is deceptively similar to that of a gold nugget.
Pyrite is said to encourage strength and leadership qualities which also increase self confidence levels.
Raw copper and even plated or filled metals can tarnish or oxidize over time. Your purchase will include a cleaning cloth that can be used to clean the metallic surfaces. Oxidized copper or silver can develop a beautiful antiqued patina over time.
