Peacock Ore Mineral Specimen Small

Member's Price:
$3.96 - $4.46

When mined, peacock ore, or chalcopyrite, is a bright golden color. It is not until exposure to air that chalcopyrite oxidizes to a variety of oxides, hydroxides, and sulfates. As it tarnishes chalcopyrite will display the bright metallic iridescent blues, greens, yellows and purples that you see here.
