I recently saw a very interesting stone but I can't remember the name.

It was mostly gold in color, but also had various rainbow colors on it. It had sharp 90 degree angles, and some of the stones even looked like staircases. Maybe they were cut that way. It was very similar to pyrite, except for the mystery stone had the rainbow colors as well and that intriguing staircase shape.

I've looked all over but I can't find it. Any help?

Well spotted, LJD. That is one freaky -- but beautiful -- mineral.
