These Pyrite in Sterling Silver Dangle Earrings have a rough pyrite stone in the middle of a sterling silver bezel setting and measure roughly 1" total. The rough pyrite earrings have the traditional brass-yellow color and metallic luster pyrite is known for. The bezel setting is characterized by a ring of metal that holds the stone in place. This encasing of metal slightly overlaps the edges of the stone, which helps keep it safe.
The mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, 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.
