Pyrite may be called fool's gold, but you would be a fool not to love the pyrite 15x30mm oval beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these elongated oval-shaped beads feature dark gold metallic color with scrawling 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 stimulate the intellect and enhance memory, helping to call relevant information when needed. 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.
