Peruvian Pyrite Egg

Pyrite is an iron sulfide mineral. The name pyrite is derived from the Greek word for fire. Pyrite’s shiny metallic appearance has earned it the nickname “fool’s gold.” The ancient Incas used Pyrite as mirrors. It is found all over the world, but important deposits are in Italy, Spain, and Peru. Pyrite is said to enhance willpower, helping one to overcome bad habits. Look closely, this beautiful one of a kind egg carved specimen from Peru has interesting crevices filled with natural perfect cubic forms. The egg shape is the symbol for renewal.
