Cutting grinding polishing pyrite/quartz?

Hello,
I have a small chunk of pyrite/quartz and may be some hemitite lump together. Is it possible to slice this chunk with regular lapidary diamond saw? Does it work the same way as rock metarials such quartz jade to grind and polish? Thanks in advance for advice and suggestion.
