What is Marcasite?

Marcasite jewelry is made using cut and polished pieces of pyrite (fool’s gold) as gemstone, and not, as the name suggests, from marcasite. Both pyrite and marcasite are chemically iron sulphide, but differ in their crystal structures giving them different physical properties. The jewelry is frequently made by setting small pieces of faceted pyrite into silver. A similar-looking type of jewelry can be made from small pieces of cut steel. The cut and polished pyrite pieces reflect light at different angles from its different facets giving it a real sparkle.
