Happy Fool's Gold Day!

On this joyous holiday, let's take a look at some Fool's Gold--AKA Pyrite. Last year, I had the opportunity to dig up some of my very own pyrite. I remember getting out of the truck and being dazzled by all the sparkly goodness on the ground just waiting for me to give it a good home. Pyrite is an iron sulfide that comes in a variety of shapes and structures such as cubes, discs, or crystal clusters (the kind I found). I loved being able to dig up something cool from the ground and making a finished piece of jewelry with it. There's a box of beauties that still need to be featured, but here is what I've made so far.
