30/04/2015 · Pyrite is a standard alteration product around sulphide ore deposits (since iron is one of the most abundant metals in the earth's crust). Pyrite forms whenever sulfur is added to a host rock containing iron or ferromagnesian minerals. Pyrite causes a striking colour change the pyritization of a red sandstone or shale will produce a ...

Seven pyrite deposits were selected for study on the basis of the morphological characteristics of their crystals (Figure 1). Since the pyrite crystals are hosted mainly in pelites and occasionally in marls, extraction of the crystals from the host rock is simple. Samples were carefully separated from the host rock with the help of a dental drill.
