3m the hole cut argillic altered feldspar andesite porphyry with quartz veinlets and pyrite
content 2-5% throughout and minor chalcopyrite mineralisation at 150.
We're not sure if it was one crystal in particular, but with specimens like the pyrite
shown above, it is easy to see how the ROM's exterior took shape
is an iron-sulfur mineral (also known as fools' gold), which forms when microbes in seafloor sediments use the sulfur dissolved in seawater to digest organic matter.
Konhauser says the key to the process is oxygen in Earth's atmosphere that allowed bacterial oxidation of pyrite
and rare sphalerite and galena.
In the last 10 days, there has been significant concern raised by the public and local officials about plans to transport this pyrite
from the site in Centre County to a disposal site in Pine Township, Indiana County," Biehler said.

The element gives pyrite
its gleaming golden tint, which tricks people into thinking it's the real deal.
The southernmost float, weighing 10 tonnes, consists of massive sulphides, predominately pyrite

According to researchers from Montana Tech, the pit contains twenty-five billion gallons of acid drainage resulting from the oxidation of pyrite
Ethnographical sources indicate that flint and pyrite

Leslie Carlson's 8-year-old Finnish spitz, Pyrite
, couldn't stay under the 53-second cap, finishing the course in just over 103 seconds.
The primary culprit is pyrite
, or iron disulfide, an abundant mineral associated with most precious and base metal ore deposits.
