Spectral Pyrite is an iridescent form of 'pyrite druzy'. Druzy gemstones are actually relatively rare, especially in non-quartz species. It is a relatively recent discovery and so far, it has only been found in one location in the world - Russia. Spectral pyrite is famed for its rainbow-like iridescence, caused by differential refraction and diffraction of light. Top quality materials can shimmer with all colors of the rainbow, including gold, green, pink and blue.
