Pyrite Suns, Coal Dollars, Pyrite Dollars, Coal Miners Dollars, Rare, Gift One, This sale is for one piece.


Pyrite is a well known talisman and meditation crystal. Its golden color and reflectiveness allows it to serve as a mirror to our true financial situation. It is a crystal that is used to enhance financial well being. Use it to find ways to increase your wealth and security.


Collected in a coal mines three hundred feet below the earth's surface, these suns formed over 350 million years ago!  The Fanned Crystal Structure is due to compressed growth between sheets of anthracite coal shale. At one time these were mistakenly thought to be fossilized sand dollars or lily pads. These are located by gently splitting the layers of shale and then must be cleaned by a labor intensive process which produces such wonderful treasures!

There have only been seven coal mines in the world where pyrite suns were found. These well-known mines, including the Baldwin Mine, the Marissa Mine, the Moffett Mine, the River King Mine and the Gateway Mine are all in the Shawnee Hills located in  Randolph County, Illinois. Six of the seven mines are now closed with only the Gateway Mine (owned by Peabody Energy) still currently operating. Pyrite Suns used to be plentiful, but as time passed, the coal mines in Randolph County shut down one by one until it has become extremely difficult to obtain quality specimens either in matrix or removed individuals. The Gateway Mine is now the last source of Illinois Pyrite Suns. Due to new EPA regulations this famous coal will not be mined again. Coal with high sulfur content will no longer be used in the industry. Since pyrite suns are found 300 feet underground new finds are unlikely to occur again without mining operations. The pyrite forms that have been found in China (also called pyrite suns) are very different from the well-known Illinois Pyrite Suns.


Miners haul these delicate specimens out in their lunch boxes, hoping to preserve these beautiful specimens from getting destroyed. In any case, the value of these specimens has continued to rise each day as these become very rare finds.


In a crystal we have the clear evidence of the existence of a formative life-principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is none the less a living being. ~Nikola Tesla
