Pyrite, also called iron pyrite or fool's gold, is associated with the Horoscope sign of Leo. The word, "pyrite," comes from the Greek word pyr, or fire, because pyrite emits sparks when struck by steel. Pyrite is called fool's gold because its color may deceive the novice into thinking he or she has discovered a gold nugget!
