What Is Marcasite?
It is interesting that though marcasite has been used in making jewelry for many decades, not many jewelry buyers are really aware of what marcasite is. Marcasite is not a crystal or a gem or organic origin, it is basically Iron Sulfide. Gemstone manufacturers mine marcasite and then cut it into small sizes, which are shaped like gems. The stone then takes a high polish and is ideally suited for classic silver antique style jewelry. The above antique silver pendant from Azjewelrystore is a good example. When marcasite is set in silver pendants or other silver jewelry which has been provided with a classic antiquing finish, the end result is truly amazing. The above marcasite 925 silver pendant from Azjewelry is amazingly affordable. With classic designs and skilfull craftsmanship your silver antique pendant would look far more expensive than what you actually pay for it. The metalic finish of marcasite blends perfectly with the silver metal, making it suitable for ladies and girls of all ages.
