Large Pyrite Skull from Peru

About

Large pyrite skull from Peru. Because of the of the shiny metallic appearance, pyrite was given the name "Fool's Gold" by prospectors mistaking it for gold in the mines. When struck against a hard object, it can produce a bright spark; for this reason, its namesake is derived from the Greek and Latin word pyr, meaning fire.
