1 Additional Answer
To clean marcasite jewelry, you can use a commercial jewelery cleaner, but be aware there are chemicals in these and they can damage any gemstones that may be attached to the piece. A safer alternative is to simply use a little baking soda and warm water. Apply it to the piece and gently scrub with a toothbrush. Rinse with warm water to remove all the baking soda and dry thoroughly.
