MARCASITE:

An iron ore material, pyrite, which is set into silver or pewter jewelry creating an antique jewelry look. The minerals marcasite and pyrite are similar in composition but are actually different. True marcasite is not suitable for jewelry making so "marcasite" jewelry usually uses pyrites round-cut and polished, mounted in a rhodium-plated silver setting.
