Pyrite nodules – Charmouth, UK
Interesting little Pyrite nodules from Charmouth, UK. These are often fossiliferous and can occur around Ammonites. Over time, as a result of pyrite decay, they grow into strange and unusual shapes.
In some cases, you will find they can be much more ‘golden’ or ‘brassy’. These have been brushed with a brass wire brush to give them that colour – pretty, but they should be correctly labelled as such. Some of these pieces do have a light brassy colour – this is often oxidation from the air.
