Pyrite Rocks for Fire Making

From $24.95


produc2This is as primitive as it gets….striking 2 rocks together to make a spark an then transform that spark into a fire.  The only rocks capable of this is “fine grained Iron Pyrite.  We were able to collect a small quantity of these rocks near the nickel mines in Sudbury, Ontario and have those pieces for sale.  This is a very difficult way to make a fire since the sparks are very low temperature (dull red in color) and hard to see in daylight and the sparks need to be caught in powdered tinder fungus (char cloth will not work), however these rocks will make a spark that can be transformed into a flame as we demonstrated in our fire making video Fire Volume #1.
