In Marcasite jewellery, Pyrite used as a gemstone is called “Marcasite” – that is, marcasite jewellery is made from Pyrite, not from the mineral marcasite.  In the late medieval and early modern eras, the word “Marcasite” meant all iron sulfides in general, including both Pyrite and the mineral marcasite. The narrower, modern scientific definition for Marcasite as orthorhombic iron sulfide dates from 1845. The jewellers’ sense of the word “Marcasite” pre-dates this 1845 scientific redefinition.
