Pyrite, or Fool's Gold, is a wildly popular simple cubic iron sulfide that is commonly referred to as Fool's Gold. It achieved this nickname for obvious reasons. Its name is derived from the Greek phrase pyrites lithos translating to the stone which strikes fire. Pyrite is found all over the world in quartz veins, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. It has even been found to replace minerals in fossil specimens such as gastropods and trilobites. This mineral has had many uses in the past. It has been used as a source of ignition in firearms and fire starters. It is currently used in the manufacture of paper and lithium batteries.

Pyrite is considered both a stone of luck and protection. It promotes good health and emotional well-being.

Chemical Formula: FeS

Commonly found in Brazil, China, Italy, Peru, and Russia.
