    In my opinion, fool’s gold is a really interesting mineral, and in this video, I try to show some of its cool properties.

    This is the first in a series that I hope to do on mineral, so please suggest any other ones that you might like to see!

Me while watching this video: WOW HOW CHILDISH! does he not understand that it is possible for the iron disulfide to have a non cubic unit cell, instead being able to be orthorhombic, and forms a different mineral called marcasite.

i remember reading a historical excerpt about an Englishman who sailed to America, found a metric-pile-ton of gold, and shipped it back to England. Elizabeth I even knighted her. but then they discovered that all the gold was just pyrite.

That's a trick of the light. In truth, it looks like neither gold nor silver. It looks like golden metal and silver metal and greenish brass and rock all at once. It's essentially just its own thing.

6:25 - "I'm not 100% sure what caused this..." Ummm, that's pretty standard thermal expansion shock. It's the same reason most types of glass tends to shatter when heated up suddenly. The decomposition probably had VERY little role in it. Heat the whole thing up -slowly- and the shattering probably won't happen.

I remember one time when I was little and I was staying the night at my grandmas house I went exploring at the train tracks that were not even half a mile away. I was walking on the rail when I saw something glimmer in the sunlight. I went to go see what is was and to my surprise it was a big rock with pyrite coming out the side. Now at the time I didnt know it was pyrite and I actually thought it was gold, in fact I didnt know pyrite was a thing. In the span of 5 minutes I had found about a pound of pyrite total from some other rocks I found. As I began running home I began to think I was gonna be insanely rich for my age. I told my grandpa that I had found gold, he looks at the rocks and he goes " oh yeah that's just pyrite" he said it in such a way that made me think it was equivalent to a bag of dirt. Mann I was so upset but now that I'm watching this vid its actually unironically funny😂(sorry if my English is not good)

I’ve heard of it being used to make the Philosophers stone in Alchemy. Although alchemy is generally shunned these days. Hennig Brand who was an alchemist and a pharmacist was considered by some to be the father of modern chemistry. He discovered Phosphorous. Anyway they say the other elements are Mercury, Sulfur and salt. But not any salt it has to be celestial salt. And the real problem was when you tried to break down the atomic structure through a process of breaking down those elements over and over and over mortar and pestle? I’m not however sure if they also used the acid on it more than once then dry it and break it down again and start all over. Then once you weakened the atomic structures of those elements enough you had to break it down with acid I think phosphoric and Citric acids and then you had to hermetically seal it in rock Crystal and heat it to impossible temperatures. At some point you’re supposed to achieve a luminous stage where you see a rainbow effect much like oil on water. And they call that “ Ravens Wing.” Once it gets to that stage you’re supposed to go into a dark place unseal it and you had Philosophers stone. Which according to legend you should wrap in beeswax and drop it into molten lead and it would turn it into gold? That’s the story anyway. Oh wait one more thing they say if you put water into the crucible that you made the gold out of lead in and drink it you would become young again? Crazy right. What’s crazier is I put all of that together out of numerous books years and years ago and I still remember it all. LOL!
