Peacock Ore, also known as Bornite, is a mineral made up by a combination of copper, iron and sulphur. This metallic ore gets its nickname from the beautiful iridescent colours that occur on its surface. Sometimes mistaken as being man-made, these colours are natural and occur as the surface tarnishes when exposed to oxygen. For this reason, peacock ore is very rarely tumbled or polished as it would remove the tarnishing which causes the iridescence. The iridescence on peacock ore come in many hues, the blues and greens mimic the bright colours of a peacock’s tail feathers.
When you’re struggling to put yourself out there and be yourself Peacock Ore could be your new best friend.
