Fools Gold / Pyrite Cube

An interesting Pyrite formation, a Pyrite Cube is simply a much larger cubic version of one of the crystals commonly seen in a Fools Gold crystal formation. They seem almost unnatural, but they do naturally form in an almost perfect cube.

We offer specimens from around the world, in a few different quality grades.

  • Grade AA pieces are a perfect cube, the best you'll find. We very rarely have these in stock.
  • Grade A pieces are a decent cube, typically with a few marks, scratches, or tiny imperfections.
  • Grade B pieces are cubes with some imperfections and missing pieces but retain the cubic structure.
  • Grade C pieces are part or partial cubes, sometimes with some matrix or quite misshapen.

Pyrite cubes make an interesting display piece in any collection.

Our current stock includes specimens from Navajún, La Rioja, Spain. I also have some very small twinned cubes, some of which are several combined cubes. These are very small though, and should be considered micromounts.

 

 

Pyrite is also known as 'Fools Gold', as its shape and colour have confused miners and gold panners for centuries. It is, of course, Iron crystals, rather than Gold.
