Pyrite, or iron disulfide, is 44.6% iron and 53.4% sulfur. Its gold color and metallic luster caused it to be mistaken for real gold during the 1848 California Gold Rush. It was mistaken for gold so often that is soon became widely known as "fool's gold." Pyrite can be found in most parts of the world and somtimes contains a very small percentage of real gold.
