What is marcasite?

Marcasite is a mineral of a light bronze yellow colour, with a metallic sheen.
In the Pomellato 67 collection, marcasite (Raw material utilised: pyrite) was used to conjure up the ancient, romantic character of a traditional material rediscovered and re-interpreted in bright pav├ęs with a dark allure.

The name marcasite was used mainly by the Arabs, who associated it with the fascination of fire. Historically, the first fragments were found inside Inca tombs, while the material started to be used in jewellery in the middle of Queen Victoria's reign.
