Shop our Marcasite Jewelry

Marcasite derives its name from the Arabic word for pyrite, and is a common and an attractive mineral use in jewelry making and in other applications. The two minerals, marcasite and pyrite, are often confused due to their similar characteristics. Marcasite is a polymorph of pyrite which means that it has the same chemistry as pyrite but a different structure and, therefore, different symmetry and crystal shapes.

Marcasite has a unique silvery-black, almost gun-metal appearance that is highly prized in jewelry applications.

Color Description
Bronze, light brassy yellow, tin white; often gray or brownish-black. Marcasite is rated at 6 to 6.5 on the Moh's Scale of Hardness. Marcasite should be worn and stored with care to avoid any permanent damage to the stone.
