A whole pound of nice, shiny iron pyrite (fools gold.) These are a perfect substitute for teaching about panning for gold. Also great for scavenger hunts and mining activities. For those learning about minerals, pyrite demonstrates interesting cleavage and luster. Each pyrite nugget averages .5 - 1 inch. (2-3 cm) and there are typically 20+ pieces in each pound. (Pyrite is easily broken into smaller pieces with a hammer.)

It's not their fault...I'm just looking for bigger pieces and that's not what I got. I can still use them in a lab and they are nice small pieces but I need bigger ones for another lab I do to create fire:)

I am totally happy with the bags of pyrite I purchased. I am giving one piece to each of my students. They are perfect!
