Marcasite is a natural mineral used in jewelry. It is a light and brittle mineral that is often mistaken for pyrite. Pyrite and marcasite have the same chemical formula, but different crystal system, thereby making them two separate minerals. In jewelry, pyrite is used as a gem while marcasite is not. It is a mined stone and when used in jewelry, marcasite is cut and shaped very much like diamonds.

To get that antique or vintage look that is very popular today, I would recommend for our Hostess the beautiful pin: Antiquity which can be yours for only $29 and is exclusive to the hostess only.

Belair
