Pyrite Earrings, Fool's Gold
Faceted drops of pyrite are wire wrapped to modern looking hoop ear wires.
All metal is solid, oxidized brass.
Total length of the earrings ist 2.5cm.
The mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, is an iron sulfide with the chemical formula FeS2. This mineral's metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool's gold.
* I also have the hoops in silver tone (stainless steel), see the last photo which shows labradorite earrings. If you prefer the pyrite gemstone with the silver hoops, let me know.
