Marcasite has a rich, storied history. Favored by everyone from the Incas to Louis XIV, it was widely used in Georgian England to make buckles and hair accessories. Its shiny quality made it the most successful diamond substitute; and its ability to produce sparks made it the perfect replacement for flint in early firearms.
