Pyrite is undoubtedly one of the most popular minerals and has a wide range of amazing varieties.

While the pyrite is located in mines around the world, the variety of this lot, Sun of pyrite, can only be found in Illinois (United States), which makes it a very exclusive variety.

Its particular flattened shape, as well as its radicular structure and its special shine, together with the characteristic golden tone and the ability of all of the varieties of the mineral to produce sparks when stricken, gave name to this typology.

In addition, since old times it has been considered "the home stone", since they were attributed some properties like bringing peace and well-being to the place in which they are located. These powers, combined with their undeniable beauty, make the Sun pyrite an ideal stone to decorate the favourite corner of your house.
