Pyrite is commonly called “Fools Gold” because of its similarity in color, shape and habit to Gold. Pyrite occurs in all different shapes and forms. The smaller crystal aggregates may give off a beautiful glistening effect in light, and the larger crystals may be perfectly formed, including fascinating perfect cube and penetration twins and other bizarre crystal forms. The perfect cubes of Pyrite embedded in a matrix from the famous Spanish mines are especially treasures among collectors. Pyrite is an extremely common mineral, and occurs in numerous localities throughout the world. Enormous amounts of small Pyrite crystal clusters come from the Huaron Mining Districts in Peru.
