Pyrite crystals in black slate rock. The mineral pyrite (iron sulphide) is often mistaken for gold, and is known as fool's gold. Its crystals can form cubic structures, like at lower right. The black slate that these samples were found in comes from an area near Millstream, Western Australia. Pyrite is prized by collectors for its beauty. It was once an important source of sulphur.
