A pyrite sphere is a sphere-shaped object made out of pyrite, also known as iron sulfide, a mineral that has a metallic luster and is often utilized as a decorative object or as a specimen for mineral collectors. Pyrite spheres can be found in a variety of sizes and can be polished to a high shine. They can be found in many places where pyrite is found, such as mines and mineral deposits.
Pyrite is also known as fool's gold, is an iron sulfide. Pyrite is considered the most common of the sulfide minerals and is rated between 6 and 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Pyrite's metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool's gold. Metaphysically Pyrite is believed to encourage self-recognition, as well as reveal secrets and memories.
