    Pyrite, aka fools gold, found with my Son in Goldsboro, NC

    My son and I searched some dirt piles that someone dug at the river, I suppose, and found these pieces of fools gold. The hook shaped ones are a mystery. They are solid pyrite. Usually, you can find these on the Neuse River in certain places. Thanks for looking.

    Nope, the magnet did not stick, and when you look at the broken ends, it is just solid pyrite, no core of metal

    Maybe the hook like things are related to filled in cavities where Pyrite filled "empty" spaces in the rock.

    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Good point, perhaps they were bug holes, I never thought of that
