I am clearing out some of my bead stash, so there are some quite special beads going to be listed each week!
These very unusual natural raw Pyrite nugget beads come in one-of-a-kind organic angular shapes. Being metallic crystals, They are quite heavy and the whole strand weighs 180g. I am selling this strand in two lots, each comprising 15 nuggets. I will not be getting these in again.
The crystals are roughly cubic and a gold-chrome coloured. Pyrite is often called “Fool’s Gold” as it is often found in similar geological areas to gold ore, and can be confused with the precious metal.
Within its gleaming beauty is a stone of hidden fire, one that can be sparked to life by striking it against metal or stone.
You could use them to make an ultra modern, anarchic necklace, or simply one strung on the centre of a chain would make a talking point.
Pyrite is the most common iron sulfide mineral on Earth and is found in shale, coal, limestone, schist, and many deposits of metallic ores.
The beads measure approximately 15mm x15mm x 15mm.
