Here is a lovely quality iron Pyrite Cube on Matrix. Yes this is how it comes out of the ground and carefully the clay matrix is shaved away. It is found in only one location in this form and that’s in Spain. This is delightful in having two cubes on the matrix.
They are just as nature created them showing the perfect cubic structure of the crystal growth habit. This form often is bought by geological collectors.
Kids love pyrite – being quite sure they’ve found gold! Then they learn “this is why its called fool’s gold”.
This crystal is said to be useful in the treatment of bones, in healing of cell formation, and bolstering the immune system. It helps increase your strength for relaxing and fighting stress.
