Pyrite in tumbler

I’ve just wrapped a beautiful hunk of pyrite w/ lots of crystal
formations. Can anyone tell me if pyrite can be tumbled? I only have
steel shot. Thanks in advance!

Well, I’ve never tried it, but pyrite is extremely brittle. I’d
worry about the material shattering unless it was fairly thin veins
well supported by matrix.
