Small pieces of pyrite crystals and chips.
Locality: Peru

  1. Color: Pyrite typically has a metallic luster and appears brassy yellow in color. However, it can also exhibit shades of gold, bronze, or even silvery-white.

  2. Hardness: Pyrite has a hardness of about 6 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale. This means it's relatively hard and can scratch glass, but it can also be scratched by harder minerals like quartz.

  3. Clarity: Pyrite usually occurs as cubic crystals or as irregular masses. Its clarity can vary from transparent to opaque, but it often appears opaque due to its metallic nature.

  4. Luster: Pyrite has a metallic luster, meaning it reflects light in a way that is similar to metals. This is one of the characteristics that often leads to its confusion with gold.

  5. Density: Pyrite has a relatively high density, with values typically ranging from 4.9 to 5.2 g/cm³. This density can vary depending on the specific composition and crystalline structure of the sample.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Pyrite is often associated with protection from negative energy and shielding against harm. It's believed to enhance confidence, willpower, and assertiveness, helping individuals overcome obstacles.
