How can I get a solid chunk of Pyrite / Fool's Gold?
I am currently in need of some Pyrite, but in the amount of at least 1cm sq. It is in the river system everywhere locally, but only as very small sparkles, I have never seen a large rock of it. Does anyone know if I can smelt it into a larger block? Does it have any special properties that I don't know of? ( Is it magnetic for example )
I could buy it from the gem store, but this will defeat the purpose of the project. Thank you for you help :D
