In The Hunger Games, District 12 is the home of the story's heroes and coal country. It is a poor district, and for many, it's a scramble to survive. Without game caught from a nearby forest, the main character and her family would likely starve. Pyrite is an iron disulfide found in coal beds and sometimes as a replacement mineral in fossils. Due to its color, sheen and hefty weight, pyrite is also called "fool's gold" though when seen side by side, the two minerals are easily distinguishable. Like pyrite, hematite is also iron rich and dark in color, though the hematite spacers in this necklace have been copper coated for a low luster metallic appearance. The solid angular forms of pyrite and feldspar contrast against the smooth dome of dumortierite in a design that is of the earth and radiates strength and antiquity.

Cost: $57.00 USD

Length: necklace - 18"


  • dumortierite bead
  • pyrite beads
  • feldspar beads
  • copper coated hematite beads
  • brushed vermeil beads
  • vermeil toggle clasp
  • Soft Flex nylon coated stainless steel cord (30 lb. load test)

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or kinking cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The beading cord and components are robust against toddler tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 18" necklace is versatile and can be worn with casual tops (crew necks, V-necks) and higher-neck blouses or deeper V collared shirts. It is a larger scale necklace with bolder design elements so care should be taken when it comes to pairing with patterns and other jewelry pieces.
