Dark gold color combines with fun shape in the pyrite 12mm square 8-inch bead strand. Available in 8-inch strands, these slightly puffed square-shaped beads feature dark gold metallic color streaked with subtle black veins. Pyrite is an iron sulfide and has an opaque, shiny, metallic luster. It is named for the Greek word "pyr," which means fire, as it produces sparks when struck with steel. Pyrite has been used in jewelry and ornamentation for thousands of years and North American Indians even used it in amulets. Mined in the USA and worldwide, pyrite is said to increase physical stamina, stimulate the intellect and help transform thought into intelligent action. Dakota Stones offers high-quality gemstones that are all useable in jewelry designs because every bead is checked to make sure they are cut and drilled correctly, that the finish is right and that the beads look distinct to their stone type.
