Pyrite’s name comes from the Greek, pyrites lithos, “the stone which strikes fire.” The crystals form in the Isometric System; cubes, octahedrons, pyritohedrons and combinations of these and other forms. It also may be found in radiating disks, hair-like crystals, concretions and massive lumps in sulphide ore deposits. Pyrite sometimes also contains small amounts of cobalt, nickel, silver or gold.

The India blue silver pied peacock. The origin of the Silver Pied Peafowl started around 1992; Silver Pied is a pattern mutation, not a color mutation. The color on the Silver Pied bird is the same as on a India Blue. Silver Pied is a combination of the Pied and the White-Eyed gene working together with the White gene.

Spectacular rainbow obsidian blades (Davis Creek, California material). Greatest length, about 13”. Private Collection. Obsidian is a type of volcanic glass that produces a much finer blade than conventional steel. It is ideal for applications where an extremely fine cutting action is required or where trace metals from ordinary blades cannot be tolerated.
