This Peruvian Iron Pyrite Ball is a great unique gift for a mineral collector. Iron pyrite is often known as fool’s gold because of it’s metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue that gives it a superficial resemblance to gold. The name pyrite comes from Greek meaning “of fire” or “in fire”. Metaphysically, pyrite is a shielding stone that protects from danger and deflects harm. Pyrite is also known as a stone of luck, attracting wealth and prosperity to the holder.
