History of Marcasite
It is a brittle material that cannot be scratched with a knife. The thin, flat, tabular crystals, when joined in groups, are called "cockscombs." In marcasite jewellery, pyrite used as a gemstone is termed "marcasite" – that is, marcasite jewellery is made from pyrite, not from the mineral marcasite.
