Fools Gold / Pyrite Cubes on matrix
Pyrite cubes on matrix rock, available in a range of sizes. The sizes we sell describe the rough size of the matrix stone, not the cubes – which are typically between 5 and 30MM approximately.
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.
It sometimes occurs in a cubic formation, and that is what is on offer here; Pyrite cubes, still trapped in their original host rock matrix, as they were mined. These pieces may have more than one cube on the matrix, of course – the larger pieces typically have 3-5 cubes.
We sell a few different sized pieces and styles of Fools Gold – please check our Pyrite section for more.
