Pyrite Beads

Pyrite is brittle, meaning it breaks or powders easily. It can be identified in the field by the sulfur smell of the powdered mineral. Its metallic luster and pale-to-normal, brass-yellow hue have earned it the nickname fool's gold due to many miners mistaking it for the real thing, though small quantities of actual gold are sometimes found in pyrite. In fact, such auriferous pyrite is a valuable ore of gold. Pyrite is being used with silver and gold in organic body jewelry, earrings and pendants in Bali. We have carved pyrite and marcasite for the inlays of plugs (plain and faceted), spirals, tunnels, hanger, pinchers and earrings. Wholesale body jewelry and beads are offered at www.esotericadornments.com and www.dreamfactorybeads.com.
