Taking Care and Cleaning Marcasite
Often, marcasite is secured in its setting with jeweler’s cement and because of this, it may require special cleaning.
Wipe gently with a soft and clean damp cloth.
Dry with a clean, soft and absorbent cloth.
Use a towel to ensure that the piece is entirely dry.
Use a steamer, hot water or sonic cleaner
Expose to chemicals or cleaning agents
Expose to extreme heat
Soak in water
As with all jewelry, a bit of care and patience gives its own reward with longer lasting pieces.
