Legend of the "Mad Gold": A popular legend related to pyrite says that it was used by ancient alchemists in their search for the philosopher's stone and gold. They are said to have searched for gold, but often returned with pyrite, as it has a lustrous appearance similar to that of gold. They called it "mad gold" because apparently it was gold, but in reality it was just pyrite, a stone that has no gold value. However, this legend has also been interpreted in a deeper sense, suggesting that true treasure and riches are often hidden in things that do not always appear so at first glance, and that real gold is not always what you see. with the physical eyes, but can be found in wisdom, knowledge and inner experiences.
