Marcasite jewelry is jewelry made from pyrite (fool's gold), not, as the name suggests, from marcasite, a form of iron ore.
Pyrite is similar to marcasite, but more stable and less brittle. It is frequently made by setting small pieces of pyrite into silver.

It’s been an unofficial place of Catholic pilgrimage since the Virgin Mary allegedly appeared on a nearby hill on August 24, 1981.
There is a “Queen of Peace” statue marking the site of the first apparition and one in front of the St. James Church.
Note that Medjugorje is misspelled on the medallion.
