    Pyrite was once widely utilized in the creation of jewellery, but its popularity has waned in recent years. Pyrite is also known as Iron Pyrite and "Cat's Gold" in Germany, in addition to "Fool's Gold." Pyrite was previously highly treasured and admired by America's native Indian tribes since it was thought to be a magical crystal for them. They used pyrite to polish mirrors for fortune-telling and gazing. Pyrite was employed as an ornamental stone for rings, jewellery boxes, shoe buckles, badges, and other items before the 18th century. During the Victorian era, it was also immensely popular in England.
