Pyrite is commonly found around the world in a variety of geological formations. But what’s fascinating about this stone is how it evolves. It starts as iron-rich sedimentary deposits in hydrothermal veins. As it evolves, it forms in masses, stalactites, grains, globes, cubes, and even twelve-sided crystals! Pyrite is a very fluid stone and, like our own lives, can evolve in any number of directions.

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.

This pyrite gravel makes for a fun "gold-panning" experience when mixed with sand, and is sure to be a fun activity for kids!

Available in 1lb bags.
