Decorative beads are tested for the presence of iron pyrite, or FeS2, in an activity well-suited for the National Chemistry Week theme of "Chemistry Rocks!"
Check out these experiments that are very easy to perform and also related to the themes for National Chemistry Week in both 2017, Chemistry Rocks and 2018 Chemistry is Out of this World!
