   Peacock ore is the name that old miners gave this mineral, and it's easy to see why. The iridescent colors of this specimen resemble the colors of peacock feathers.
   Natural peacock ore is called bornite. Its mineral composition is CuFeS4, copper iron sulfide. Bornite is a chief ore of copper, which is one of immense importance in the electrical industry and in the production of alloys such as brass. This specimen is chalcopyrite that has been treated with an acid to make it look like natural bornite, peacock ore.
