The first order was fine, after that was junk stones with very little pyrite, just flecks. Getting a refund wasn't even worth my time, and they treat customers like they are idiots. If you put a picture up of what is for sale, and it is not what you get, then, the seller is the idiot, or taking advantage of customers with false advertising.

I am very happy with the quality of the pyrite I purchased from this seller. The color is marvelous and the size is magnificent for the price asked.

The picture is very misleading, as is the description. The piece I received is much smaller than what was promised. Not worth the expenditure.
