Pyrite Gravel



Iron pyrite, or fool's gold, is an iron sulfide. It represents the prototype comound of a crystallographic pyrite structure, and it was among the first crystal strutures to be solved by X-ray diffraction. The crystal typically forms cuboid crystals, and also form framboids, which resemble raspberries.
