Historical Background[edit]

Fool's Gold is another name for mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, which is an iron sulfide. This mineral's metallic luster and pale-to-normal, brass-yellow hue have earned it the nickname fool's gold due to its resemblance to gold. Pyrite is the most common of the sulfide minerals. The name pyrite is derived from the Greek word meaning "of fire" or "in fire". This name is likely due to the sparks that result when pyrite is struck against steel or flint. This property made pyrite popular for use in early firearms such as the wheellock.
