After the matter reached a final fixed red like an incombustible sulfur or a salamander which endures the fire it was allowed to cool and then placed back into an extraction vessel with more of my vinegar solution. The liquid became red like dragons blood.

The whole mass of roasted iron pyrite and red vinegar along with its sediment was poured off through stacked coffee filters then dissolved in warm vinegar and filtered again to reveal the fixed salt of iron pyrite.
