Pyrite is an extremely beautiful mineral, its colour is like gold, but with a very different structure. The color is so similar to deserve the nickname of ‘Fools Gold’, although there are actually fairly simple methods to distinguish them.
Pyrite, for most of the time, has streaked cubic forms, with perfectly parallel lines, but can also occur in forms more similar to gold nuggets. The differences lie in consistency (pyrite crumbles while gold distorts), and composition: pyrite, being a sulphate, emanates sulphur fumes if placed in contact with fire, that is not the case with gold.
This beautiful specimen has a shape in cubic blocks, very well defined, and extremely harmonic to the eye, a beautiful collector's item.
