Marcasite is actually iron pyrite and dates back to the time of the Incas who first used it in jewelry. It's metallic luster, when cut like gems, imitates diamonds. It is set in sterling or silver metal to enhance the metallic shimmer.
The pin is in beautiful condition, all the marcasites are intact and the pin is signed "sterling" on the backside. It measures 1 3/4 inches long by 3/4 inches high in the middle of the design and 1/2 inches on the outer edges.
It would be fabulous on a great blazer; Autumn, Winter, Spring or Summer.
