This rare tumble stone is a mixture of Pyrite, Triplite. The mineral Pyrite, or Iron Pyrite, is an iron sulfide know as Fools Gold.
Triplite is a rare fluoro-hydroxide phosphate mineral that forms in phosphate rich granite pegmatite’s and high temperature hydrothermal veins.
In colour and appearance, Tripolite is very similar to Rhodocrosite, another manganese bearing mineral.
