Marcasite, in the jewellery sense of the word, is actually iron pyrite as marcasite itself is too brittle alone for the durability required of a piece. This jewellery marcasite is sometimes called ‘fool’s gold’ given its heavily metallic appearance. Marcasite of this kind also offers a kind of iridescence, explaining its use as a more affordable diamond replacement that will still catch the light beautifully. Much marcasite jewellery is Victorian-inspired as this was an era where marcasite was much adored. Vintage, antique, retro and art deco styles set with marcasite are now coveted by many looking for individual and unusual styles. Gemondo’s marcasite jewellery pieces are all lovingly hand set in sterling silver. Our marcasite is sourced from all over the world, but mainly from the mountains of Switzerland, Austria and here in the UK.
Countries of Origin: Austria, USA, Spain, England, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Peru, Bolivia
