Our Pyrite Sun radiates like glorious beams of light. It is our oldest mineral at approximately 300 million years old (Pennsylvanian-age rocks) and is found 200 to 250 feet below ground in coal mine seams.
What makes this pyrite so exceptional is its disk-like shape, as it’s usually more common for Pyrite to form in intergrown cubic-shaped masses. This spectacular metallic saucer contains marcasite and can range from the size of a penny up to the size of a dinner plate. Pyrite Sun, AKA Pyrite Dollar is unique to only one place on earth in the area near Sparta, Illinois.
Pyrite is known as the Stone of Protection and Positive Energy. It stimulates the intellect and enhances memory, helping to recall relevant information when needed.
