Handcrafted Apache Pyrite Apache Gold Chalcopyrite stone crystal pendant in a simple frame with a 925 stamped bail.

Measures 1 7/8 inch tall, 5/8 inch wide.

The black host rock is a Chlorite Schist, the shiny gold is Chalcopyrite aka Fools Gold.

The name Apache Gold is a reference to the Apache Indians who lived in Arizona and the gold color of the Chalcopyrite.  


The name Chalcopyrite is a combination from the Greek word khalkos meaning copper and the mineral pyrite.  Pyrite is an iron sulfide. Chalcopyrite looks similar to the gold colored Pyrite, but it actually has a richer, more buttery, yellow color.


Copper sulfides were buried beneath accumulating volcanic materials.  These rocks and ores were then metamorphosed by hydrothermal activity.  This created the rich Chlorite mineral known as black schist.  Schist is a common coarse grained rock and most schists are mica schists, but graphite and chlorite schists are also common.


Chalcopyrite is a positive stone and is said to increase happiness and believe in oneself.  Chalcopyrite is also said to assist one in finding lost objects.

Common questions

For pendants pictured without a bail (the piece that goes into the drill hole so you can slide a chain through), I will make a wire bail. I will need to be able to reach you to see what color bail you want the wire in.

Please keep dry. Some crystals will dissolve if they get wet. A little sweat against the skin or a little rain (if you are out and about) will be fine, but please do not shower or swim with the pieces.
