Default Fool's Gold

On Saturday past, I was driving across Arizona & in a store, found Iron Pyrite for sale. It caught my eye , thinking it might be a substitute for glass smalts. So, I bought about a pound.
I had a couple of extra "gold texture sample" pieces here that were unfinished, so I decided to try it out. Photo attached ....
Since it will apparently tarnish &/or rust, its uses will be limited since I try to avoid using clearcoats. But, IF that's the look someone is after, & a lot of people like things to weather normally, I guess it could be worth stocking a wee bit. Anyway, I now have a sample ....
