Chalcopyrite (Peacock Ore) - Raw
Not everyone knows that this very popular stone, often sold as 'bornite' is in actuality a naturally gold colored metal called chalcopyrite that has been treated with a mild acid (like vinegar) to oxidize the surface and yield brighter colors. The stones are soaked and then rinsed, leaving behind a bright oxidized iridescent purple and blue coloration where the natural stone has been oxidized. Rarely, a similar but much less bright oxidation can also happen naturally. Many vendors sell peacock ore as being the stone called 'bornite' but true bornite, although naturally having similar colors, is much less brightly colored and much more expensive. You will rarely see true bornite for sale because peacock ore is much more colorful and beautiful. Chalcopyrite peacock ore is said to promote improved perception and to aid in removal of energy blockages and improvement of imbalances of metabolism.
