Fool's Gold
A gold-colored mineral that is often mistaken for real gold. Also known as Iron Pyrite.
    
During historical periods of gold rushes, many less-than-knowledgeable miners would frequently believe that they hit the mother load upon finding a huge cache of fool's gold. Unfortunately, unlike the real stuff, fool's gold is relatively worthless. The mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, is an iron sulfide with the formula FeS2. This mineral's metallic luster and pale-to-normal, brass-yellow hue have earned it the nickname fool's gold due to its resemblance to gold.
