Peacock Ore is the common name for the mineral Chalcopyrite, particulary when the surface has tarnished or oxidised to display beautiful iridescent colours. These pieces display a stunning rainbow of sparkling colour.
Chalcopyrite combines the warmth and expansion of copper and the sunny disposition and clearing properties of sulphur with the warrior-like strength of iron. It is said to draw off inflammation, and is sometimes used to reduce fever.
i absolutely love this stone. i have it on my desk at work and everyone comments on its beautfiul striking colours.
