I'm tipping that a superglue would do the trick, depends on how porous the pyrite is, this stuff tend to works better on non porous stuff.
Common sense isn't exactly common

If you go the superglue route, I would suggest one with slightly higher viscosity if the material is slightly porous.  Used sparingly.  The low viscosity stuff could tend to run away on you and soak in a bit more.
