Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Pyrite (FeS2, name derived from the Greek word pyrites, meaning "of fire") is an iron-sulfide, commonly mistaken for gold and thus nicknamed 'fool's gold'. In real life, Pyrite's closest use as fuel was previously a source of ignition in early firearms during the 16th-17th century but is also now commonly more used as a cathode material in Energizer's lithium batteries.
